Gulp! Wouldn't like to have one of those in my soup! (But nice to look at on the screen.)

Great shots, Roy!

I worry about viewing them before breakfast, just like Kjell.

If those things are as big as you say they are, I'm glad that I haven't run into one. They look nasty.

Wow this is huge if not gigantic/insane.
Great shot Roy
Are they getting bigger after another Texan Bush went to the White House?
Or they are getting bigger because of the heat wave.
Such size is mindbogging
