Autumn in My Garden 2009: Millipedes

Pin It

I found this millipede while weeding in the garden.
It curled up into a tight little ball about the size of a nickel
and wouldn't come out for the longest time.

When it finally unrolled itself,
I barely had time to take a few photos before

it slipped away out of sight.

I'd curl up like that too if I got found by a giant being looking down on me!

And I was so calm and quiet, too! I guess we humans forget just how imposing we are to the critter world. Nice to hear from you, Anna Maria.

Oh. My. Gosh. Glad he finally felt safe enough to slink away.

He (she?) was fun to watch, Paz. :)
