Last Wednesday, while scouting for a plein air painting scene, I inadvertently stepped on a fire ant hole. Before I had time to step back, both feet and ankles were covered with the ants in full attack mode. I wound up with bites all over both feet and ankles; they even bit me between my toes and on the soles of my feet.
So far I have counted 73 individual bites, and more keep breaking out eac day . I get one set of bites under control and another breaks out . Seven days later, I am still taking antihistamines to control the burn. Guess I
won't be plain air painting in that location. And next time I will certainly be paying as much close attention to where I am painting, and as what I am painting.
