Been awhile since I’ve posted anything — sorry about that! Ramping up for “Back to School” (and then actually starting) seriously affected my ability to focus on anything.
I started getting my ‘focus’ back this week, though — specifically, in my garden.
This particular caterpillar was one of many that decided it was time to suspend himself from a handy stem and start metamorphosis. Within a mere couple of hours, he’d transformed himself into a dead-leaf look-alike — much like this one from a couple years ago:
Unfortunately, there are so very many caterpillars on that vine these days, the entire thing looks dead. It’s a trade-off, I guess: ugly vine for beautiful butterflies.
Enjoy! Hopefully I’ve got my schedule under control now, and I’ll be posting a bit more frequently.
(Oh — and for those who’ve got kids and are following the “discussions” about President Obama’s speech to the students next Tuesday, I even managed to get a political post up at the Chronicle. Don’t go there, though, if your tinfoil hat is too snug… LOL!)
