This bug weirded me out. It was on inside of van window, then I pulled over to inspect it. It looked like a crescent moon with legs and danced side to side. I managed to get this picture before it jumped on my shirt and my hubby knocked it off. Because I screamed so loud, I didn’t want to get on ground to look for it again. I didn’t want people thinking the wrong thing, so I drove away.
Signature: Tolerant of bugs I know of, terrified of unknown.
