It took me a very long time to find a name for this sweet thing. From a distance, it looks like many other residents of my local woods. But on closer viewing, it has the worst skin texture I’ve seen in a long time! At first, I thought this made it look particularly ugly … but I actually think it’s rather sweet looking.
I believe he or she is a Sawfly – a Dolerus nitens to be exact – but, as usual, I may be wrong and stand to be corrected by any experts out there.
