Darwin on Variation in Ants

Was just listening to a snippet of Darwin's "The Origin of the Species":

...the difference was the same as if we were to see a set of workmen building a house of whom many were five feet four inches high, and many sixteen feet high; but we must suppose that the larger workmen had heads four instead of three times as big as those of the smaller men, and jaws nearly five times as big...

That left SUCH a weird image in my mind just there.
