Leaflessness

One of my favorite movie quotes is from A Bugs Life (1998). The Ants were given a deadline. They were told their deadline occurs "When the Last Leaf Falls".

My favorite part, if you look closely, is the black bug (top) and white bug (bottom) crawling on the stem.   https://youtu.be/YVnHrBYz0_8 I … Continue reading Roses and Thorns
