I'm admiring the gorgeous bark of a tree and looking at the ants running up and down the bark terrain when I notice a tiny lump of lichen. Moving.
The poor thing took a vacation from it's tree for my team of naturalists to stare at it under a microscope, take a thousand pictures, and throw out random theories of what this could possibly be.
When scared they curl up like pill bugs.
After a while, I just google lichen covered insect and figure out it's a lacewing larvae. Some do even cuter things than this one! Like attach mini snail shells and ant body parts to their debris pile! If you are having a cute attack, we should be friends, if we're not already. Cutest insect I've ever seen.
