How tiny some of them are!
I know whales and elephants and rhinos are much larger than we humans.
But not to the degree that we are to some--most--insects.
I saw a moth outside a few minutes ago that was as small as the white on my thumb.
I make a point not to kill insects--except flies.
But the other day, when I was on the deck reading, a tiny bug, no bigger than a pencil dot, was on my book. I blew it off, but realized it was on the arm of my Adirondack chair and when I put my book down, I killed it.
I felt awful.
I didn't intend to do that.
Tiny things need to be protected and honored--except flies.
I broke my vow to leave them whole.
And who knows how many ants I kill just walking to my car?
We must share the planet with tiny creatures.
