A Bugs Life!

Ever thought of what it might be like to be a bug? A small tiny bug. What about a small tiny bug that has been captured by tiny hands. Sometimes when we're outside playing and the kids come up to me with their hands closed together I say, "What's in your hand?" A smile spreads across their face as they open their hands and show me whats in their hand, A BUG! Most times they ask me what kind of bug it is they captured, or they tell me. But 8 times out of 10 the bug is DEAD. Like this dragon fly...

He looks alive, but he's not.

See the concern in her face? Yeah me neither. :)

On a totally different note... have you ever seen the movie A Bugs Life?

When my little brother was two he would only watch that movie. We had to go out and buy another VHS of that movie because it wouldn't work right anymore. VHS... Crazy... you don't see VHS anywhere anymore. I had a little kid tell me about a moivie that was coming out. I said to him, "Oh it's coming out on VHS." He said, "What's VHS?" I had to correct myself and say, "I mean DVD." Oh, how times have changed.

While you are doing your normal daily routine think about those bugs and about what it would feel to have a bugs life. :)

I don't think I've ever seen a dragon fly so close up in a picture before. Love that first shot - the angel, everything - it's like a story waiting to be told!
