A for ABC Wednesday

Round #5 of ABC Wednesday begins with the letter A. Thank you!






A is for ant.
An ant can lug 100 times his own weight so this one is hardly stretched to trundle off with a tasty white spider.
I'm guessing this is where we get the term 'take-out'.

WOW, ants are amazing,aren't they? Good choice for the letter A. Awe-inspiring actually. If an ant can do all that, well....

Such industrious little creatures, - I wonder how long he had to journey to find the right take-out place?

I once taught a unit about ants in French and the kids learned all about how strong and social ants are. Great choice for today! :D

One time my mil's preacher used the ant to 'carry' the message of God. Love it! TTFN ~Marydon

Or maybe take over. Poor little spider.

Ants are strong little guys. I've seen them take out tastier (to us) items than that spider. I wonder how much of a Big Mac he could manage...

Is the spider alive and put up a fight? It should a struggle.

Thanks for visiting. Do not like ants at all. Æsj

'Take out'! ROFL!! That's a good one!

I used to be deadly afraid of ants, for some reason ... perhaps because I disturbed a nest once when I was a kid and they ran up my legs. I wan't allowed to continue to be scared though, not with a Dad who was an entomologist! LOL!

A great choice for the letter A! Now I understand why they're able to lug away something twice their size. I've been enjoying catching up on reading some of your poetry today.

Take out... that's clever. Ants are certainly unique little creatures.
