Big bugs have come to Leu Gardens in Orlando for 2016 — but in a good way.

It's true that Florida bugs sometimes come extra-large, but for a limited time bugs that are larger than life have landed at Harry P. Leu Gardens, about 10 minutes from downtown Orlando. The latest buzz in the botanical park is an exhibit of giant insect sculptures on display, now through April 15, 2016.

Big Bugs is a traveling exhibit featuring different insects and other arthropods. The display teaches visitors the difference between different species of spiders and insects.

The massive sculptures, some of which are a whopping 12 feet high, are all made from wood using a variety of different trees, branches and saplings.

While strolling along the meandering paths through the gardens, be on the lookout for giant ants, dragonflies and ladybugs. And don't forget to look up — there might be a gargantuan spider above your head!
