Speaking of shows, my POLICE tickets came this morning - WHOO HOO!! I'm close enough to see
OH! I wanted to mention that all of our Monarch caterpillars (and Swallowtails, too) hatched, got massive, then started disappearing, and not in the "forming a chrysalis" way. We suspected a rat-fink of a Mockingbird as the culprit. We ran to the attic and got my "life-like" vulture that I use in Halloween decorations and set it up in the garden by the dill, where the caterpillars were. And all the birds disappeared. (My cats and Sally-dog, too, hahahahaha.) "Life-like" was an accurate selling point, clearly. Heeee! I'm trying to IS some weird moth/bird that appears at nightfall every night. Mr. S didn't believe my description until I dragged him out there and he made a "what on earth?" face like you see in the movies. MOTHRA. Or the most bizarre hummingbird I've ever seen, we can't tell. No, really! It has antennae AND a beak like a hummer. And it moves like a hummingbird, but has the body of a moth. WHAT IS HAPPENING? [ETA] It is a HUMMINGBIRD MOTH, derp. Thank you!
(I'm checking for Dharma Initiative labels in my neighborhood, heeee!) In the meantime, we keep singing "Mecha Robert Smith/HummingbirdMoth" type songs like on South Park. I hope you're all having lovely days!!! <3 <3 <3
