The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona is hosting David Roger's Big Bugs sculpture exhibit. We went to visit today.

Of course I went right for the ants.

The big ants are nicely positioned along the skyline.

At 725 pounds each, these are serious ants!

What, no elbowed antennae?

And of course, little ants...

Note to self:  If all your photographs are out of focus it might be time to clean the lens! 🙂

Just wanted to give my local readers a heads up:

The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona is hosting David Roger's Big Bugs sculpture exhibit again, starting in September. They have some ant-related events associated with the exhibit:

There will be a showing of the documentary Ants -- Nature's Secret Power on November 3, 2011 at  7-8:30 p.m., with a question and answer session by Dr. Bert Hoelldobler afterwards.

Kevin Haight from Arizona State University will present Ants in the Sonoran Desert on Saturday, October 8, 2011.

There is a fee for both programs above, the amount depending on whether you are a member of the garden or not.

Look for classes for children and a kid's movie at the website as well.
