Such a Little Thing

Isn't it funny how something very small can make you feel nostalgic? The other day I found this larva on the lawn and I was instantly catapulted back into the summers of my youth. We had a shed that had a lot of stinging nettles growing behind it and there used to be lots and lots of these stuck to the nettles. Me and my brothers would pick them up and look at them, and they would do exactly what they did when I found this little one: roll into a ball. I haven't seen one of these for years!
