Nature-inspired Comics?

I have not. Not too many in these parts but rumours. They look dangerous and cuddly at the same time.

They buzz/vibrate like other male Aculeata (solitary wasps). Harmless and fun to hold :slightly_smiling_face:

One of my favorites, thanks!

I have this one enlarged, colored and framed on the wall in my study…

I’d love to see the coloured version!

It doesn’t photograph well (in a glass frame), the next time I have my scanner out I’ll take it down and scan it. Don’t see it on-line in color (not to mention how difficult it is to locate a single specific comic on-line!).

I had a New Yorker cartoon in my office in college many years ago that I’ve been trying to relocate… a large group of sandpipers is running along a beach and one has turned to his fellow and says “I forgot what we’re looking for.” Love to find that again. :)

Dude ferngully was so good!! I still have the original and it’s sequel on VHS (albeit no place to play them now that that medium has died…)

And the reason for the switch was eloquently explained by Batty: “Humans can’t feel anything. They’re numb from the brain down.”

And one of the best things about it, we didn’t really notice until hindsight: besides its environmental message, it was also trying to help remove the stigma from mental illness – the character with mental illness was one of the good guys and had a place in society.

“Human tails? Humans don’t have tails. They have big, big bottoms that they wear with bad shorts.”
