This pic was one of the photos of the day 1/26 Christian Science Monitor.  Can you tie bugs that look like this?

Perfect !!!
First the fashionistas wanted all the long hackles for their hair.

Then they started collecting road kill to make "accidental fur" coats. (look up *accidental fur*, if you don't believe me)

NOW they're going to patent insects so we can't tie copies without paying royalties.

 

Yes, I am joking !!!

Naw, Longrodder, she's not mad.  It's just those caterpillars over her eyes that make her look mad.  Those two caterpillars are the best looking insects on her outfit.

 

 

You'd think she'd do like the majority of women and pluck some of those squirrel tails out of there!!!
