true bug nymph
of some sort.

Yes, and similar enough to a Harlequin bug nymph

Hi Hannah,

Thanks for the compliment, Jim!
To me it's a welcome break from baby talk and diapers - and more interactive than bridge and sudoku. You could probably figure out my baby's nap schedule from the time I spend on here, actually! :)
