… but the ugliest little bug I ever did see(…r). Or so I thought.
I spent a good 5-10 minutes trying to get the sharpest shot in the low light just before dusk of this critter I nearly sat on in the back yard. I had my mouth clenched tight in case it tried to jump. At one point, it seemed it did, but…
It turns out it must have fallen and landed perfectly on its ‘feet’ again, because what I was picturizing (as we call it in this neck of the woods) was but a shell of a mayfly who had moulted before I ever got there. Thank you, this blog, for clearing that up for me.
