Small Worm on Frosted Wild Mountain Mint by 

Now this is where a super macro lens would come in handy!!
This is a crop, and not the best shot ever…but still had to share this amazing little critter…now folks I am half blind in one eye, and can’t see out of the other…but this looks like a catepillar of some type…at any rate it is a bug cleaverly disguising itself a dead leaves, and is smaller that a pencil erasier……
So many things in nature we have never seen before! I have lived in these woods all my life, and never saw this sweet thing in my life till yesterday!

    Now I can see it, and you made me look again. I looked for it on Google and can not find it. I can find moths that look like dead leaves but not one of these, Neat Sis. Great find.

  • LOL!!! Monkeys alway look hahahahaha…………well I appreciate you doing a search Byron :) Maybe it is just a worm, lol! Whatever it is it is the neatest little thing…..Once I had seen it I realized I have seen them on my mountain mint in the past years…but did just what it hopes all thing do..thought it was just dead little leaves or blooms.
