Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Caddisfly

I love finding caddisfly larvae!  They make the most amazing structures from leaves and rocks, plus they’re bizarre looking insects when you get them naked:

This photo gives me the impression of a cat, stoned out of its little furry mind on catnip, about to launch an attack on an unsuspecting passerby from its hiding place on top of a bookcase.  Can’t you just see it going, “AAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!” as it flings itself into your hair?  :)

      • Oh, gee – I dunno – “launch an attack on an unsuspecting passerby from its hiding place on top of a bookcase. Can’t you just see it going, “AAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!” as it flings itself into your hair?” (but don’t worry, Honey?) Just when you thought it was safe….

        • Heh heh. That’s what I thought! You know, I don’t actually tell my husband these things. I keep my crazy ideas to myself at home – or at least assure him that it’s just my own personal spin and a caddisfly larva would never make its way into his hair. He doesn’t read my blog either, so I think I’m good. :)

Have something to say?
