    This little angel got her wings today. Molting is always exciting, but I didn't expect her to be this huge. Now she's even deadlier...

    This is a stick-up

    Okay so this is totally nerdy (and my last Heterochaeta Orientalis pic post) but I used to love to say "this is a stick up" and point my hand in shape for a gun at these guys becasue 9 times out of 10 they would posture to look like a branch with twigs (but looks like a "don't shoot!" pose)
