Day 23 - Icy Weta


To commemorate the blizzard sweeping the east today, a symbol of perseverance against the chill: the weta makes it's own cellular anti-freeze. These huge insects from New Zealand can be completely frozen in ice and go about their way the minute they're thawed. 

This was done in pencil, the snow overlay was added with a photo editor.

Side Bar: I may be in Florida, but I spent a good chunk of the day outside and even for here, it's cold!
