I know I have already told you about Elly’s fascination with bugs, but I don’t think Elly has had the chance to tell you.
That is a caterpillar crawling on her arm. It made the mistake of landing on my arm. I quickly transferred it to Elly who hugged it, petted it, tried to feed it and searched for its body parts, like legs and mouth.
Luckily for its sake, Elly accidentally dropped it on the ground so it escaped with its life.
The pill bug didn’t fare so well.
Many thanks to Aunt V for the bug catcher. It has seen a lot of mileage.
The best conversation was had between Elly and Rene.
Elly: “I found a worm!”
Rene: “Ewww. I don’t like worms”.
Elly, aghast: “Why don’t you like worms?”
Rene: “I don’t know. Why do you like worms?”
