Last night I was bringing Violet in the for the night when I saw something move very slowly along the deck railing, almost obscured by the shadow. Creep........creep.......creep.
I watched while he made his way forward and kept watching while he tentatively made an upward turn. I kind of knew what he was but was curious as to why he was moving sooooooooo slow. When his head finally appeared over the rail, he stopped moving and gave me a good long staredown. I was probably the first living thing he had ever seen in his newly hatched life and I know that little baby face of his was hiding true panic. What to do? What to do? He couldn't fly yet because he was still fresh from climbing out of his shell.
So what did he end up doing? He decided to stay put. What did I do? I ran in the house and got the camera. That little bug (for being so ugly) was too cute not to photograph.
And besides, he reminded me of somebody.......
