Black Garden Ant
The common hawker is a large hawker dragonfly which is on the wing from the end of June through to October. It is a species found mainly in the uplands of the north and west, particularly moorland pools and lakes as well as garden ponds. Hawkers are the largest and fastest flying dragonflies; they catch their insect-prey mid-air and can hover or fly backwards.

Black Garden Ants can be serious pests, particularly when they invade houses, but mostly they will live side-by-side with humans without cause for concern.
