It was bigger than a hummingbird!
When I was but a juvenile delinquent child of 11, I was always tripping over my feet. They were (and still are) size 12. My wise old grandmother told me to look down to see where I was going and eventually my feet and mind would get coordinated. They did. But I still have this propensity to look down, especially when I’m in unknown territory.
A couple of days ago I was out birding at the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve when I looked down and saw this:
It was a big bug scurrying merrily along on the path that we all were walking on. It was bigger than the hummingbird sitting on its nest that we saw.
I stopped to watch and take pictures (no one else did), half expecting the white-tailed kite nearby to swoop in and scoop him up for breakfast. I have no idea what kind of a bug it is; if you do, please let everyone know in a comment.
P.S. For those of you who were expecting something beautiful to start off the new week, just remember that Mother and Father Nature think all of their little ones are beautiful!
