It has been over eleven years since we became the caretakers of this sliver of paradise. Piece by piece we have exposed the bones of the landscape and nurtured the earth to help her grow into her current state of equilibrium.
Most days something unique crosses my path. More recently a camera accompanies me and I am honored to capture the unique, the beautiful, and sometimes the frightening. But one creature has alluded me these many years. I’ve seen the fruition of transformation but I’ve never encountered this creature in its larval stage until now.
And I must thank my Maddie for this chance encounter. She ventured into the woods with me but was reluctant to return.
I had to go in to retrieve her and there by her side was a Spicebush seedling with the elusive creature clinging to one of its leaves.
I hope you find this creature as amazing as I do. I feel it could have stepped out of the App Pokemon Go!
