Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

Sleeping in the Flowers
standing next to sunflowers always makes me feel weak like “look at this fucking flower. this flower is taller than i am. this flower is winning and i’m losing”
Wow you are not ready to hear about trees.
One of the few likeable things about Florida is how you see all these weird storks and ibis things and jungle birds in the garbage everywhere. We see all these exotic dinosaurs eating out of dumpsters behind fast food places and first we were like “who’s throwing out all these damn birds” but then like “oh they throw themselves out” and now we always make reference to how they belong in the garbage to the point that we see birds anywhere else and are like “look at those birds who forgot to throw themselves away”
These things, in particular. White Ibis. These are easier to find than pigeons. I could drive to a Wal-Mart right now and see 20 of them bobbing around.
And throwing themselves out
