Angry Insects

The DH spotted this on his way to get the paper. This formation went for six feet. Zillions of ants look to be having a gigantic, panicky fire drill, or some sort of evacuation procedure. "Everybody out! Mill around!!" But more likely it was something like a big pesticide application driving them out from underground.

This little guy has HAD it with me chasing him all over the table with the macro on, and he's turned to fight, belligerently putting up his two wee front legs like a boxer. Cracked me up.

Okay, the ants creeped me out, but the spider made me giggle. I love his fighting stance. What a guy!

Whoa! That's an awesome pic! I can't get my camera to get such great close-ups!

Thanks for stopping by, and for the kind words. Wow, before you know it, I'll have to use TWO hands to count all my readers. Awesome.
My camera's only a point-and-shoot, but it has a "macro" setting for closeups. I'll bet your camera has a macro setting; check your manual.
