Inspire me Thursday - Wood (Bugs) :-)

This week at Inspire Me Thursday - the theme is Wood. We were encouraged to look around and explore wood in our environments. Well what did I find outside in the wood? Wood Bugs. Trust that I did my research on this - which is why it took so long to post this one.

Anyway - Harriet, aka Woodilus Bugilus (the yellow one with purple polka dots on the left), is related to the common cold germ and hangs out in Sycamore Trees.

The mild-mannered WOODbug on the right - yep, the one with the purple wings is the type that will hang upside down on a dead tree limb waiting for you to leave the house - and then dive bombs you. Watch it.

The one in the back. Well let's just say it's not drawn to scale. It's a huge, frightening mamabug, - she lives inside the wood too. And I'm afraid... too terrifying to speak of, let alone color in...

Lise,
You are one of the most creative people I know! What a wonderful way to parlay at pesty situation...into art! Hopefully the bugs won't "bug" you too much : ) Funny thing...my brother is a certified pest control specialist..and he's an artist too! I can't wait to show and tell your story to him! - Marvelous work, Lise.

P.S. And I loved your story! You're a goooood storyteller. I bet you could weave that into a really, scary story for kids around a campfire one night - heck..it's giving me a bit of the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it! kids
