Animal Wednesday - Tomato Hookworm and the Poison Ivy Factory
After doing much bike-riding and kayaking this summer, I am convinced that all Poison Ivy is NOT real - and that somewhere there must be a bunch of gleeful gnomes manufacturing fake Poison Ivy. I mean really, there is SO much of this stuff around - it can't all be real. So I imagined a little factory of bugs and gnomes and elves, just manufacturing this stuff in vast quantities and selling it to other bugs and woodland animals who want peace and quiet around their homes.
This tomato hornworm is coming over with an order for a new batch of PI. He doesn't look particularly hungry does he, but he does want some protection around "his" garden to ensure quiet, uninterrupted munching.
