I found this dude hanging out in my hedge this afternoon. Seems quite content. There’s probably a lesson there.
It was a relaxing weekend for me. Hope yours was nice, too.
As long as he’s not thinking “I am a leaf on the wind; watch how I soar!”

This reminds me of the conclusion by Stephen J. Gould, referring to stick insects. From these creatures we learn that sticks and stick insects, leaves and leaf insects, look the same to their predators as they do to us. Thus, the idea that our individual brains have created the world we live in is not tenable. In fact, we are related to and share a lot with the other creatures around us.
“Excuse me but I’ve been trying to contact you about your car warranty.”
Katy did or Katy did not, there is no Katy tried.
oh… geeze… GMO are indeed a horror… what idiot spliced insects with leaves?
