While I’m definitely not a bug-fan, I will say that the stomach-clinching I experience looking at insects like this is very similar to what I experience at places like the Georgia Aquarium (which I blogged about here): “My stomach and heart clinched, and I felt, ever-so-briefly, as if I teetered on the edge of eternity. The creatures in front of me—some literally inches away—were so other-worldly and strange that they were reminiscent of encounters with God. Foreign, yet familiar. Related, but Other.”
I like how God taps me on the shoulder with such ordinary things as this leaf-like bug. Keeps ya humble.
