We found Narnia.....


There is no lion, witch, or wardrobe in our back yard. Instead, we found a leaf-footed bug that is probably Narnia pallidicornis.

This bug is much cooler looking than the moldy white Cochineal scales !

Woe, an alien bug!!! Freaky.
We have bugs like that here, and if they bite, it burns really bad, like a wasp sting. Your yard is beautiful my momma says. I of course, see all things as toys....so, your momma's yard wouldn't like me....lol

I don't think I am interested in bugs. Do they run away so you can chase them?

You got some weird bugs in your backyard. I'm beginning to like my own California bugs just fine now.
