Ant, glorious ant! Glorious giant ant! [Jun. 9th, 2009|02:14 pm]

Pardon me while I revel in my myrmecan geekiness:

Oh. My. God. Isn't it amazing? It's got something stuck in its "teeth" and a dusty butt. And we can see it. And it's just a little ant.

This is why I never stay depressed or stressed out for too long. It's all worth it, just to have been able to see that.

(Some of you are thinking...uh, you could take it easy, chill, do less, be less stressed out and you STILL would have been able to see that, Mere. Shut up. Don't make me commission someone to make me a steel ant mandible based on that picture. Because it could be your nose stuck there between those mandible ridges...)
