A Bug's Life

I shot beautiful dotted green bugs, racing along hairy plant stalks or snoozing in sun-lit yellow petals or eating their way through purple flowers.

"What are they doing?" I asked my friend Jill.

She laughed.

I said, "You're the bug expert!"

She laughed again. "Procreation,
food, basic needs."

My basic needs are so much more complicated that some days a bug's life looks pretty good.
