While walking around the property last night, I notticed that one of my pecan trees was practically buzzing with blue wasps. Instead of fleeing for my life, I kicked the observe portion of my brain on and did some looking around.










There were some small catepillar creatures crawling around as well which are what I presume were eating the leaves, and were inturn being eaten by the wasps.

As little as a year ago I would have been wondering what spray I should be looking for to genocide the caterpillars... if I had even notticed them.

Now that the permaculture infection has taken hold, its really changed my outlook not only on the gardening stuff, but life in general. Hopefully its terminal.
