There was a break in the much needed rain, so I took my cuppa out for a stroll around the garden.
Noticing the splash of vivid red, I grumbled about the candy wrappers that always mysteriously appear in my front garden. Bending to pick up the suspect litter, I got my eyes closer to this....mini-monstrosity! Click the pic for a better view, if you dare.
Im fascinated and repulsed by it at the same time. Never, ever saw one of these before. Its so alien AND beautiful AND ugly - all at once. If I find out any info on it, I will edit this post to add it.
