Mama Wheel Bug ( Arilus cristatus ) -- Bingham, Illinois
I found this big, beautiful mama Wheel Bug guarding her clutch of eggs (you can see them just behind and underneath her) on the side of a large red maple tree in southern Illinois one summer. Notice the spiny dorsal crest on her back, shaped like a cog or wooden ship's wheel - that's where these bugs get their name.

Some information from Wikipedia:

"The wheel bug (Arilus cristatus), in the family Reduviidae, is one of the largest terrestrial true bugs in North America, reaching up to 1.5 inches (38 mm) in length in their adult stage. A characteristic structure is the wheel-shaped pronotal armor. They are predators upon soft-bodied insects such as caterpillars, Japanese beetles, etc., which they pierce with their beak to inject salivary fluids that dissolve soft tissue. Because most of their prey are pests, wheel bugs are considered as beneficial to the garden as ladybugs. They are also known for eating stinkbugs.

Wheel bugs are highly regarded by organic gardeners because they consume a variety of insects and their presence indicates a healthy, pesticide-free ecosystem. "They're the lion or the eagle of your food web," Dr. Michael J. Raupp, an entomologist at the University of Maryland, notes. "They sit on top. When you have these big, ferocious predators in your landscape, that tells me that this is a very healthy landscape, because all these other levels in your food web are intact."

Listening to Korsakoff's Sherezade, which is a beautiful piece of music, with my youngest and explaining the story behind "1001 Arabian Nights". He has no idea, and I blame myself. The dust on my classical-music collection speaks volumes..
Realization slowly sinks in how much of a classical education the current generations are missing because of a more fast-food Disney-fied way of storytelling through lazy-video-Sunday-afternoons.. For shame really, something I definitely need to remedy.

So, no more video-sundays but Story Telling Sundays.. I have plenty ideas (and books to lift them from) but I'm wondering. What do you guys think, where should I start, what should I read and which music will fit the themes..?
