MONSTER  INSECT

Burlington, Vermont

Monday, October 4, 2004

At a Wal-Mart near Burlington, VT, I spy this huge plastic dragonfly. Ha! At first glance I though was actually real. Silly me! I wonder how many other people have done the same double-take as I? Can you just imagine if all insects were really this big? Not only would you be making more trips to the car wash, you'd also be going through a lot more windshield washer fluid as well.

This is a first for me, I've never seen a dragonfly grace the front of a vehicle's grill. Isn't it funny how some people get the urge to put stuff on the front of their transportation? I've seen cow horns, wreaths, stuffed animals, fake shark teeth, you name it, someone has probably mounted it on their grillwork.

As I stand here looking at the dragonfly, I'm actually starting to feel a little jealous. Wish I had one too!
