I have know idea what this is.

I know I've been pretty lax in my blogging duties. What used to be a daily picture blog has turned into a whenever-I-get-around-to-it blog. I am approaching 38 weeks of pregnancy so I'll just use that as my main excuse. There is also the fact that I live in what I refer to as "the caverns" where natural light is scarce. My camera handles low light very poorly and lately I don't have the energy to go out and hunt great pictures. But have no fear. I'm not throwing in the towel on my photography habit.

The insect in this picture was dead at the time I photographed it. However, just moments before it was flying around my uncle's house sounding like a small helicopter. We're not sure what it is. One theory is that it is a young queen ant that was en route to starting a new colony.

Looks more like a character from Star Wars Episode II.

I'd hate to see the old queen ant.

Okay, as long as it doesn't make its way into my apartment, I'll concede it is kind of interesting as a photo subject.

38 weeks! Please keep us posted--so to speak!
