'Little and large' (could be one or the other, or a combination of the two) is a suggestion by picqero.

I must have had something specific in mind when I suggested this theme, but can't recall what it was
These giant pencils were photographed in Knightsbridge, London, and are simply an unusual advertising feature.

Fred is now over 20lbs and the same size as Bill

This is the world's biggest Mosquito.




Since this photo had my daughter in it I had to photo shop her out so I could stay within the rules.
I was going to take out the light and pole as well but it gives the viewer some idea of how big the bug is.

Wow, great theme pictures this week! Argus, that is one very large 'skeeter'.

This big glove can be found in a small mining town in Colorado.

A big copy of a small flower with an even bigger meaning... Taken a few hours ago on what was an overcast winters day at the National Memorial Arboretum.

I have shown my "Paddington Bear" (affectionally known as "Paddy" ) a few times, but a good friend of mine sent me a Mini Paddington in a tin for Christmas, and this thread seemed perfect for them

"Big Paddington" must be heading for 20 years old now, he was hand made for my nieces. He used to have a blue duffle too. When my nieces outgrew him, I "Inherited" him and Mum knitted him his hat, coat, boots and even a suit case

Maybe not the best shot for "Little and Large" but it's the only thing I can think of that I have on my computer right now. I took this last summer, a bee on a rose of sharon

Little ducky, large ducky I have some medium-sized ones as well, but they must have gone for a swim when the photo was being taken...

Tigger and a fairly rare Zoid (Evil Pegasus Zoid). It is taller than the picture next to it, which is an 8x10, and Tigger towers over both of them. I think Tigger is related to Godzilla somehow (Catzilla?)
