Attack of the Ants!
RUN THEY’RE COMING FOR US!!! AHHHHHH!!!!
I couldn’t resist, but on serious note. The local botanical gardens in Ames, Reiman Gardens, is a gorgeous place to walk around during the spring. Recently started a tradition of having interesting themes placed throughout the gardens. Last year it was gnomes all over, this year it is giant bugs. I mean these guys are all super sized! This ant is about 7-8 feet tall and 15 feet long. It just so happens that my fiancé and I will be tying the knot at Reiman in less then a month! Where we originally planned on walking down the aisle they placed a giant praying mantis. I thought it would be cool to have him in the background of our wedding photos, but unfortunately my soon to be wife didn’t. I honestly think all of these bugs are seriously cool and well done. They are actually tasteful in the gardens. Who would have thought?
