Today is Day Three of
Thirty Days of Photography II.
The photo topic for today is: FROM AN ANT'S PERSPECTIVE
Now is the time for all of you fancy ass photographers to use all of your expensive lens. Some of you will be getting down on the ground trying to get the perfect perspective. Let's just say that I would never get up again and leave it at that.
But if you are an ant and you are in my house, this is what you will see. Yes, you would be looking up in a mist of insecticide drops trying to decide what just hit you. It was me. Or Lurch. That's what just hit you.
I am a West Texas girl. I was raised in a dry, arid region of the country which some critics describe as sand dunes and desert. I have to admit that I love the dry air of West Texas. Dry air usually means less bugs. Oh, we had some bugs like mosquitoes, chiggers and ants, but we had horny toads to control the ants. Yes, I said it. Horny toads. That's what we call them. Some snooty people might say horned toads...like that makes it any better. They are horny toads and they control the ant population.
But I couldn't stay in West Texas. No, I ended up in East Texas, where I live not only in a forest, but I am only an hour and a half from the coast. Could you think of a more humid environment? We have bugs. Bugs of every possible description. We have bugs that crawl, bugs that fly, bugs that mate while they fly and bugs that just bug the hell out of you!
Don't talk to me about the environment. I do everything I can to protect the environment, but in my house, bugs are not welcome.
If you decide to come in anyway, be prepared to be shot.
