A crazy whole lot of people have been googling “pre imago” and hitting this blog in the last 24 hours. I only used the term in my March 20th post because the words “pupa” and “larva” bother me. (Read into that what you will.)
What gives? Was there a story on the news about a serial killer modeling himself after Thomas Harris novels? Is there a teacher somewhere assigning reports on butterflies? Has an unexpected infestation of cocoons caused the threat of monarch swarms? Oh, someone, please tell me!
(Incidentally, fellow bloggers, it’s true what they say about using more specific titles to attract traffic. But I ask, do you want to be hit on? Or do you want to be read?)
