If you burn wood and are squeamish about incinerating critters you may not want to read this post.
That's because my wood pile is a veritable zoo, and I'm posting a few examples of the residents.
One of the myriad of critters hiding in the crevices.
Bark encrusted with mosses and lichens.
What you can't see, without magnification, is the hidden world amongst them all.
Light the lichens.
Meandering galleries of wood-boring insect larvae.
Fry the frass.
