From time to time I find my self on all 4's stooped over in the back yard inches from some odd creature or another. Pausing for a moment to be face to face with nature can be a wonderfully fulfilling break from the perils of trying to keep up with our evolving political landscape. During this series, I will inevitably feature images of bugs and animals I find in my travels abroad or to my back yard.
