The Quick:

…The Slow:

…and The Tiny:

Aphids on a milkweed plant.  Creepy if you’re a plant.

Some fellow travelers to break my e-fast.

Now we just need some radiation to turn the last into a real-life homage to 50s sci-fi flicks.

Randal, making them big with radiation is kinda spendy – it’s cheaper by far to just get small! 😉

Well, i liked the first two pictures a lot but even though I’m not a plant I find aphids icky. It must be the memories of picking them off my roses in Portland.

I generally find sucking insects/animals creepy. I think it’s a biological self-defense posture, being a creature of a succulent nature! 🙂
