Lasius flavus flying right now in the netherlands
Crap, I missed them again. There's a flavus nest in my back garden that didn't fly yet as far as I know so fingers crossed for a second flight this year.

My nearby colonies (mainly Lasius species) seem to be gearing up for round 2 or 3. I think this might be the last for 2018!
