I hope everyone appreciates how little these guys are, and how fast! Especially like the direct gaze of v1.


(I didn't believe it when I went to change the water in the cat's bowl out in the garage yesterday - a queen chrysallis was attached to the outside of it. I sincerely hope it does overwinter!)
