Pretty little cocoons (I had to Google the spelling of cocoon. It's kind of like how I always have to Google the spelling of vacuum. And now I just had to Google the spelling of vacuum again).

This should appear to be a pretty, just hatched little moth. To me, though-- my mind immediately jumps to The Silence of the Lambs. I wonder if it's just me or every other traumatized human being of my generation? (Tina, I know you can sympathize... "It rubs the lotion on its skin..."

    I personally like the dung one...it's very scientific and necessary to have dung to keep life going like it or not! Dung is very special!

  1. Hi Christy,

    Yep, I used the 50mm for all of them. I rarely take that lens off, now. : )

    & to Ms. "Dung is very special..." that HAS to be my mom posting this comment. Must be a teacher thing. : D
