I’m diggin the comic style! Nicely done Jimmy 🙂
Awesome! Just… awesome.
FYI, the flower is Trillium and although common here, In Michigan and Minnesota it is illegal to pick Trillium. And something else cool is they rely on ants for seed dispersal, and that beetle on it is eating some of the plant which makes ants avoid it and disrupts Trillium’s reproduction process. You can flick off the beetle next time but be carful the plant can die rather easily if the leaves are torn. Also used by natives for… indigestion problems. Yes, I used Wikipedia to help me with these details but I originally learned about all of this here at my internship with the Veterans Conservation Corps, through the Mt. Adams Institute.
🙂 Great info! I wonder how effective they are for indigestion? May have to try if the need ever arises while here in the PNW. On my way back from this trail we saw a horde of these beetles devouring the same kind of centipede I have pictured in this blog. I really love seeing things from the view of the micro-world. It’s a brutal world down there.
