It appears to be a bullet shot through your photo.

Nope.... not curled up! I took the photo looking down and that was his cute lil fuzzy wuzzy head. He was crawling straight up the stem of the plant. You guys are toooooooooo good. I'll never be able to pull the "wool" over your eyes. I thought for sure I'd have you all screaming uncle on this one!!! hava> it DOES look like a bullet shot now that you mention it!!!!

Cool...I see it clearly now. It *is* just the head (head-on shot).

At least I wasn't completely right (it wasn't curled around the stem). Hopefully that should make you feel better...would it help if I cried "Unc!"

I moved it to an untreated plant. I had to do it.... could you have resisted a face like that?
