He had a new friend. But this friend was terribly afraid of insects, and seconds after this photo was taken, the new friends bashed him in the face with a sack of wet salmon, in an attempt to destroy the colorful creation of nature and light.

The salmon were from a fishing farm 20 miles outside of a local farm village, which was near another farm. That's where the bug came from, incidentally.

The creature's name was Wippleslip the third.

You just had to name it. We all know that extends the grieving process.

I asked @leduncan if he had to put aphids on his face to get the lady bug to land. I ask you the same.

mOtke says:
@justjamey - ah yes, I did see the @leduncan shot.

And yes.

Aphids on my face.

Actually, no. I just picked the fella (lady) up and put her on my face. Apparently, they like to be on faces. And all over the inside of my house.
