Buggy Again

Still feeling buggy. Blah! I hate the flu. Or whatever this is.

It's mean. And it bites.

Like these guys.

Have you ever been bitten by a huge friggin' ant like that one? I stepped on one when I was a teen and it hurt for days. Its body was so strong that I squashed and squashed and it would. not. die.

I've not ever been bitten by a spider that I know of though. The one there is supposedly a spiny orb weaver. We found it while walking a trail at a local wildlife reserve last weekend. She was pretty small... 1/2" or less. But magnified she sure does look fierce. Apparently spiny orb weavers are good garden spiders since they eat pests. I think I prefer her right where she is. Though maybe if she came to visit my gardening would go better considering part of the problem was pests.

Ooor maybe not. I think I'll take my chances.

Bugs look really freaky up close like that. The ant picture is super awesome!

I've been bit by many ants and spiders. I don't like it one little bit. I drowned/boiled a bunch of ants in our last backyard. They were building hills so I poured boiling water all over them. We had an ant invasion in our kitchen so I had to get rid of the problem.

I've never been bitten by a huge freakin' ant, but I have seen someone shove a stick through one. The ant just kept on walking along like nothing even happened. Stupid ant...didn't even know he was dead.
