Something Sweet

Today Ugly Overload turns three years old. The blog has learned how to walk and speak in complete, if not coherent, sentences. Now it's busy bucking authority and throwing tantrums. Actually, three years is quite old in blog years, since most bloggers have more sense than to continue a blog for this long. (Un)fortunately for all of us, there doesn't seem to be any shortage of uglies out there. Here's to a few more years.


On this sweet occasion I wanted to serve something sweet? And that's just what these honey bees did when they served themselves by flying into this orb weaver's web. You all know how big a honey bee is. Now you know how big the spider is. I hope the bees met a quick end.

(P.S--Some of you complain about spider posts. Believe me, I understand your complaints. If you want less spiders, feel free to send some alternatives along)

Actually, I'm rather fond of spiders (as long as they keep to their own world). But I wonder whether your nightmares are given to scenes like this:

Alison said... no likey spiders, but I have to admit, this is a perfect image to mark such an important event. Congrats on finding something that continues to fascinate you (and us), and gives vent to your creativity.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I will forever remember this site for introducing me to the horrible world of bot flies. YAY!

Rats and woodlice, not my favourites. But spiders--very cool.

Some people complain about spider posts? I can't think of anything uglier than spiders. *shudder*
