Giant bugs attack Metropolis!

On Thursday, my friend, her adorable daughter, and I went to the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see the giant bug exhibit. We're both huge bio-dorks, so this sort of thing is right up our alley. As soon as we walked in the entrance, we were greeted by this:




And from the side:


An enormous praying mantis lurked around a corner.

Here we have the enormous praying mantis about to eat my friend's daughter.


She seems quite cheerful for someone in such mortal peril.

And here is the point at which my camera made the Angry Noise of Death and told me that my batteries needed to be recharged. Some idiot had forgotten to bring the car charger and charge the batteries on the drive over. That idiot might have been me. So rest assured that the rest of the gardens were just as spectacular and populated with gigantic bug sculptures, and that it was fantastic. I'm hoping to be able to get back out there and take more pictures. Until then, remember kids: Always charge your camera batteries. And go to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It's really cool.
