You may have heard of this insect, (I wasn't aware of it until today), but if you haven't, you gotta see it. Even if you don't like bugs, you might think it is pretty darn cool.

Thanks Don. How fascinating. I now have a file of these beautiful little critters. Every one is a work of art. The divine design department did a good job on this one.

Yes, it's really an amazing-looking animal, isn't it? So many varieties. Very unusual and wonderful garden inhabitants.
