I know little about them. I must do some research. There appeared to be some reddish ones, and black ones with wings.

Daisy was quite curious!

They are doing their nuptial flight! Most do it in the Spring, but some do it in the Fall. It's a good time to catch a queen and start your own brood! (Per my Ant-crazy son who has several colonies he's started on his own).

Leslie beat me to it - additionally, if the ants feel their nest is under threat, they will take flight. There was one day at Wimbledon, when storms were raging, that the players got swarmed by flying ants! YAM xx

It's amazing when the winged ants all emerge in large numbers. I also saw the ants at Wimbledon as Yamini mentioned

Just as long as they're not fire ants.
