Brooding On

Laughing My Evil Laugh

As you may know, squash bugs bring out my most destructive and violent tendencies.  I take great pleasure in squashing them between my fingers before they have a chance to do further damage to my plants.  The other day, I let out my most evil MU-ah-ah-ah laugh as I squashed two bugs as they were mating!
But, even I paused just a moment before squishing the life out of these newborns. ;)
Isn't this cool?  At top, you can see the cluster of Squash Bug eggs.  I'm guessing I caught them mid-hatch because the little black-legged fellas appeared to be just stretching their legs for the first time.
