ABC WEDNESDAY for the 4th time


Today we begin the 4th go-around for ABC Wednesday.
The first letter is " A ".
" A "
is for giant ANTS. Awfully large ANTS!!
I saw these 2 foot tall ANTS at a local garden nursery. They were bronze castings and very attention-grabbing.
To see who else has posted for our ABC Wednesday just click on Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar.
Why not join in the fun. Its challenging and can be very amusing.
Enlarging this post will show the giant Ants in all their glory.

A huge ant would make an interesting garden sculpture, that's for sure!

Dee said...

Those ants remind me of an old B-grade horror movie.

Reader Wil said...

Ants are very interesting animals. Look what millions of ants can create together.

Mamapippa said...

I don't like ants very much, and if they were so big, I would run away from them.
Have a nice day !

Good choice there!

I must say I hate ants...I know it is a strong word but I do. I stod on an ant path too long once in Mexico and that was sooo awful.

Take care and have a great day/ Tyra

Great A : ). Those ants made me want to go on a picnic! Too bad it is 20 degrees outside! How cold is it where you are?

Babooshka said...

Excellent info and a fabulous image.

spacedlaw said...

Wow. These are incredible. I bet the kids must have a great time clambering all over them.

Liz said...

I don't want to see those ants any bigger than they are, thank you!!

AphotoAday said...

You'd probably have to call on the aid of "Big Foot" to squash ants as big as those...

Rose said...

I certainly wouldn't want these ants finding a way into my house! Clever photo!

Mr Mapper said...

I'm glad I don't have those ants in my pants!

Lene said...

Haha. Awfully large, yes. I wouldn`t like to meet one of this ;)

RuneE said...

I wouldn't be an AArdwark in that neighbourhood!

Ackworth born said...

I really hate ants but I don't mind a metal one.

Dragonstar said...

Those ants are wonderful! Do you think they scare away the smaller varieties?

chanpheng said...

Cute picture. Those ants are really something else.

kml said...

If I had to have an ant around - I'd take that artificial one. Beats the hundreds of little ones that scurry around and give me the willies!

Enjoyed your post!

kRiZ cPEc said...

astonishingly large armoured ant!

Jay said...

Those ants ARE big! LOL! I love them!

Nifty ants - enough to scare a cat!!

Gordon said...

Sure wouldn't want to be bitten by one of them!

AVCr8teur said...

Believe it or not, I had a dream last night about bugs. I have bugphobia and it looks like I need a big can of RAID for this one. :)

Pequete said...

Wow, my kids would love to see this live!

CG said...

It surprises me how much i'd like one of these...

Barbara Phillips said...

Love the ants and I too am trying this challenge, hopefully if all goes well I can learn something.

Barbara Phillips said...

Really like the ant, great picture. Did you or do find the ABC Wednesday site a bit confusing, I did. Still trying to figure out round 4. Barb
