Flying Ants

The setting sun illuminates a swarm of flying ants that have been stirred out of their nest by a summer storm. Taken east of Corrigin, Western Australia on 23rd January 2016.

The corrugated iron shed in this image is a very common sight on Australian country roads. When it rains, schoolchildren take cover in them as they wait for the school bus to arrive.
