Hm, what should it be? An arachid? An ox beetle? A velvet ant? All the six-leggers must have know we were coming and done R-U-N-N-O-F-T. We couldn’t find a single one, not even with a flash light.
It wasn’t even a particularly busy day for butterflies, hardly the kind that give people the willies. Just flitting to and fro, sipping their nectar and laying eggs out of the garden. Such sweet and happy feelings while watching. These aren’t fair game for a SquEEE! contest.
By 8:30p when we were just about to give up hope, Angie spotted something on the back porch.
Is it…? Could it be…? YES! Walking sticks. And they’re doing what all bugs do best, eating being their second best activity.
Tsk tsk. Right there in front of everyone. Perv bugs.
