Much excitement

I guess it had to happen. One ant bite too many this afternoon caused anaphylaxis which provided the opportunity for a first ever ride in an ambulance! Not a full blown reaction - stopped short of bronchial and tracheal swelling, but otherwise the symptoms went went the whole hog (so to speak). Too many previous bites have caused increased sensitsation = the end of working bare footed in the orchard and the beginning of a new life with the constant companion of an epi-pen.

Here's what the critter looks like.
