last week out front i saw for the first time in my life the hummingbird moth. (thanks to jack's sister i know what it's called - i had no idea at the time.)
i had no idea! it looked alot like that and was going from flower to flower... just like a hummingbird! i was aghast. how could a bug be so pretty?
then today i was coming in from errands and saw this:
i know, the pic is crappy - it is from my phone because i'm stupid and don't have the camera with me. it was some kind of caterpillar crawling around, seemingly trying to get out of a coccoon that looked like cement embedded with a bunch of blue pebbles. i have no idea what that is!!! but it was fascinating! i watched it for like 10 minutes, alternately squicked and fascinated. i really, really wish i could share a betetr picture of this.
and i got my eyebrows waxed. which has nothing to do with cool bugs whatsoever.
