Bug Love Redux: The Ant-Man Diary

|

The People of LWON and their splendid guests have several ongoing preoccupations, and rather than have you try to mentally collate them over the years, we thought we’d devote a week to each preoccupation.  That way they’ll all be in one place.  I have a feeling this isn’t making much sense.  However.  This week is devoted to redux posts on loving bugs.

photo-4This is one of my all-time favorite LWON posts.  Guest Brooke Borel is a curious science writer with a deadline, naturally looking for something else to do, finds ants in her kitchen.  The result is a Norse epic, a Greek tragedy, an Ibsen play, a story of love and loss, of fall and redemption, and a sudden descent into madness.  With video, diagram, and pictures.  Just go read it.
