Hey~hey Twinklestars! How are you? I've been enjoying summer (though I *swear* I see fall whispering in the treetops in yellows reds and shriveling greens!). I'm even enjoying the heat and the critters, except the other day I got bit (several times) by the most GORGEOUS iridescent green fly, yowch!Because we live in the country, there have been the typical insect rescues of the indoor kind, involving a piece of cardboard and a cup, to capture the wasp/moth/grasshopper/spider/lizard and take him or her back out to the natural wonderland-though I believe they just come in for some relief from the heat!
Do you think I'd be weird if I bought some of these to display as art, year round? They really are gorgeous!

Anyhoo,I present to you, from my sun fried brain, Roo's thoughts on insects:
I don't mind spiders or snakes- my ex husband was a herpetologist, who gave me boas as courtship gifts-boas not of the feather variety, but the constrictor variety-and at one point we had several poisonous snakes in cages in our dining room, and one big (200 lb) python named "Buster", who, when he was allowed to roam freely about the house, would try to hide under the love seat and it would bobble (he was a 'fraidy cat kinda snake, who also thought he was a lapdog, hence the name).
Mosquitoes-nature's little Twilight saga. Try naming some of them Edward, see if that takes the bite out of the bite .....
I ♥ bees. They are cooler than cool.Roaches, however, will make me hurt someone (mainly myself, or anyone who is in my way when I am trying to get out of their way).
Horseflies annoy me-one of the reasons I walk at night in summertime. :p
I don't see many snails, but when i do i always stop and say hello and talk about the weather.
Have you loved a bug today? :)
