Quit Buggin’ Me

So, I was sitting in front of the television last night watching Cops or Forensic Files or something when the cat, ever busy amusing herself, began jumping up and down by our sliding glass door. After she did this a few times, I figured there must be something there getting her attention. Sure enough, this little green bug was livin’ it up on our back door.

We get interesting bugs hanging out on our back porch fairly regularly, though they’re usually cicadas or bees and other random things. This one struck me as interesting.

I am always amazed at the unique features that animals develop, especially insects. Some look like nuts, some like leaves, some like sticks, and this one—apparently—is modeled after baby corn. Awesome.
