Big Bugs Everywhere

On January 15, the Big Bug Invasion took over Leu Gardens. An army of enormous ants meet visitors as they enter the gardens.

Created from natural materials, the creatures lurk around every corner.

Despite the fact the insects may stand over twenty feet tall, many remain hidden among the plants.

While others, like the lady bug remain in the open, ready for photo ops.

The 200 pound assassin bug was quite a specimen.

But I have an affinity for spiders and this one camouflaged among the bamboo may have been my favorite sculpture.image-67-683x1024

The Big Bug Invasion continues at Harry P. Leu Gardens in downtown Orlando until April 15 so there’s plenty of time to get acquainted with the garden’s newest inhabitants.
