I came upon a folder from 2008 with photos I don’t remember. The photo was taken in my garden and features a mystery critter on a ceramic angel’s wing. If you happen to know what it is let me know! Judging by the angle, I had to get on my hands and knees to take this shot but I think it was worth it all these years later.
