Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves
The leaves are evolving. Soon they will be the dominant species
It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down. The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites. An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us. The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
Anyone else have 3005 irreparably stuck in their head?
Thank you for this very seemingly unexcited ask, anon! My day was filled with packing, which I hate, especially since we’re also moving houses as well as I’m leaving for school. I had an excellent lunch at the standing room though, and then I continued packing and stressing about all the people I didn’t see much this summer. But now it’s done so I guess I’m gonna watch that Julie and Julia movie on Oxygen with my cat? Except my cat’s avoiding me because he’s angry at me packing.
OH my god what kind of fucked up fmk is this lol?? Ok the sofa is nearest me and I guess kill it?? How you kill a sofa idk but that’s what’s happening because I don’t want to kill a live thing. And I’m gonna marry one of my pets because otherwise what’s left is beastiality and that’s a no no, so I guess I’m fucking nicki minaj! Boom.
Thanks for the ask :)))
