Manabi Province/Ecuador –
Yesterday while pulling tender rank growth in the shady recesses of the gardens, I noted an abnormal splash of electric color near ground level. Pausing for a closer look, this Zeebra allowed a psychedelic caterpillar to alter the next ten or so minutes of my day!
With many other tasks at hand and with sunset approaching, I said, “Goodbye,” to Senorita Caterpillar who was surely on the threshold of becoming Madam Butterfly.
Jimmy Hendrix would surely approve of pairing this circus-worthy caterpillar with his masterpiece, “Little Wing.”
“Well, she’s walking through the clouds
with a circus mind
that’s running round.
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams
and fairy tales,
That’s all she ever thinks about –
Riding with the wind.
When I’m sad, she comes to me
with a thousand smiles.
She gives to me free.
It’s alright, she said,
Take anything you want from me,
You can take anything, anything.
Fly on, little wing –
Yeah, yeah, yeah, little wing…”
