Haiku: Spring Garden Insects
Ever since I was a kid I've been fascinated by the interesting colors and patterns of bugs. Always on the lookout for new types to put in an old mason jar to study, I have come to regard most of them as my garden friends. Here are some whimsical haiku for you:
Stodgy June Bug
Hisses in protest.
No shyness for feasting.
Effective pest control.
Waves of color
White-lined sphinx moth
Blurred wings vibrate.
Safely collecting insects to study is a great way to learn to appreciate the uniqueness of each one. I promote the practice of catch and release
