Blue Pill Bug


Discovery of the day:  a blue colored pill bug (outside of Safeway, spotted by K).  We wondered, Calpurnia Tate-style, if we'd discovered a new species and K even named it, "Lavender Kathmomiana."  Some research brought new knowledge - NOT a new species but a typical, average bug with a virus - iridovirus, to be specific.  Well, who knew that being sick could make you so pretty!
