I had just finished a nice run along the coast in Santa Barbara. As I arrived at my apartment, I noticed a friendly little Lepidopteran resting on the wall. Completely at peace with life, nothing was going to move him from the cozy spot, and I had no intentions of evicting him. His family very well might have just signed their lease, and I was happy to welcome them by not only not swatting them away, but providing them with a free-of-charge, no hassles photo shoot. Here are their favorites tiny shots.
This has been a public service announcement: Think before you swat.
We all bug each other every once and a while.
Maybe the last insect to bother you was simply having a bad day.
