All creatures great and small – Wordless Wednesday

My eagle-eyed and very observant two-year-old (in 3 weeks) found this ant and was amazed by what it was doing!

Here is a close up of what he saw, a small ant pulling probably 10 times its weight in cheese - ain't nature amazing!

PLUS – here are some photos taken by my daughter near our house at the weekend.

She’s pretty talented I think!

Up, up and AWAY!

About to take off and follow the other balloon!

I have to credit the Husband for taking the kids out in the car to see this happening - I was still in bed. I love that man!

Have you been up in a hot-air balloon?
Do you have those big ants that bite and boss you around your own home?

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. Well done M! Got a little budding photog there I think Ems! No, never been in a balloon and not sure you could pay me enough to go in one. Fear of heights or claustrophobia, not sure which would get me first!

  2. Ants are amazing, so strong and so organised. It’s lovely to photograph the wonder of a child.

    Your daughter took some lovely photos of the sunrise. She has a good photographic eye.
    I’ve never been up in a balloon. One day I will…one day (sigh).

  3. Lovely photos. Your daughter is very talented And Happy Birthday to your sister ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I wish I was as strong as an ant! I went up in a hot air balloon a few years ago. I won it! I was scared shitless but loved the experience. x

  5. Great eyesight there little one!!
    Damn tricky are them ants!

    OOOHHH nice air balloons.
    Never been in one of them and tbh no desire to do so either!

  6. Beautiful shots of the hot air balloons! A part of me wants to give it a shot one day, but another part of me is scared because I’ve heard a few stories of the balloon bursting mid-air and crashing down!!! :/

  7. The hot air balloon pics are gorgeous. Your little one definitely has some talent! I find great pleasure in squishing ants, annoying little fuckers that they are.

  8. Nice shots Miss M, you clever girl! The ants around here are the bitey ones, so not my favourite things. x

  9. Oh man, I’ve gotta get into bed and send my kids off with the husband. I’m so damn tired!

  10. Oh I have done hot air ballooning and it was truly one of the greatest things I have ever experienced! Haven’t lifted a ton of cheese bigger than myself though! Great shots!

  11. Love hot air balloons! Dying to go on one!

  12. Beautiful silhouette photos ๐Ÿ™‚ Your daughter has a good eye for photography!

  13. Wow, nature IS amazing. And so is your talented daughter, and devoted husband. Jeepers, what a guy! Those ballooning photos are great, I’ve never been, but it would love to. xx

  14. What a great find!! Very clever to spot an ant – still can’t believe that it can carry something that big ๐Ÿ™‚
    Actually I had to look twice at the pic!!! And those hot air balloons look like so much fun!!

  15. Lovely photos! And I’m always amazed by ants…the way in which they carry things that seem to be so heavy in comparison…just incredible. But I’m definitely not a fan of theirs! ๐Ÿ˜›

  16. I love how enthralled kids get with things like ants. It’s great to stop and notice these things!
    What great shots your daughter got, a budding photographer for sure and a husband that gets up to take them to see something like that while you sleep? Awesome!

  17. You have hot-air balloons in your neighborhood? How cool is that?!

  18. Very fun to ride in a balloon! Nice pictures!

  19. Wow Em she is very talented!! I would love to go in a balloon one day.

  20. Isn’t it wonderful that your little one notices the wonders around him. Ants are amazingly strong little things! Your girl took some awesome photo’s! I’m not sure that I would be brave enough to go up in a hot air balloon. I like the concept of floating away up there and the amazing views but then I think about how weird it is how it stays up there just coz of a wee fire thingy and how fragile the whole situation seems and the shitty ol fear thing sets in *bah humbug* ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Amazing how much weight those ants can carry! What a clever daughter you have! I’ve never been in a hot air balloon. One day…

  22. I used to live near a park where the balloons launched from, I’d be getting ready for work and I’d hear the WHOOOOOSH that meant a balloon was nearby so outside I would race to take pictures of it! I’ve never been on one though, don’t know if I’m brave enough! xxx

  23. Very impressive photographer, that wee lass. I once went up in a hot air balloon, I’d love to say it was less than 25 years ago but…..
