The Batty Bug Lady of The Woods

Yet another interesting bug that caught my eye with its color and simplicity!

I don’t get it! Where is this fascination with bugs coming from lately? I’ve never been a fan of bugs (other than my own little Bug of course) but since we’ve moved to The Woods, I find myself watching these little creatures more and more (and snapping pictures…who does that?).
Let’s face it, I *might* not be the most sane person on this planet, some might even say I’m “off” just a bit, but a bug watcher? I always assumed I’d turn out something like The Crazy Cat Lady from The Simpsons one day. Her story and mine are quite similar actually. That would not have surprised me in the least. But The Batty Bug Lady from The Woods?  Never in a million years!
I’m convinced, however, that it is not my fault! You really can’t take an Island Girl off of the Island and throw her into the middle of The Woods and think she won’t be *touched* in some way! 
But you have to admit, this is a pretty interesting little bug, whatever the heck it is! I just hope I get out of The Woods soon before I start breeding rare bugs of some sort. Ewwaahh…what has become of me?
Happy Wednesday y’all! Sure hope I didn’t *bug* you with this little rant of mine. And whatever you do, watch where you walk today. My friends are lurking everywhere and hoping to enjoy their day too. 😉

  1. Bugs are awesome ….. according to my son! He has a bug bible that he checks to ID what to heck they are. He picks them up – no problem. I think most of them are cool and colorful and amazing – just think of the planning that went into their design!

    Bug bible huh? Maybe I need to get one of those since this seems to be a recurring theme of mine. 😉
