Yesterday Right Outside My Front Door, I saw a bunch of ants going crazy outside there holes and flying away. There was big ones with wings and tiny ones with wings, Is there a reason they are different sizes? males and females possibly? I have pics and vids, but is unable to send a pic for some reason...

Queen ants of the same species are almost never different sizes, therefore the only other size of elate would be a male.
