You Know, Some People Need Nothing Else

Whenever I'm stripping bark off a deadfall birch for firestarters (that is, when back-country camping), I always run into these large, thumb-sized larvae tunnelling just under the bark. Presumably some kind of large beetle. They're white and segmented, and when disturbed, they go almost spherical in defence.

Anyway, my gnocchi from the other night bear a passing resemblance. And since Cara Sposa has bought a small waterproof point-and-shoot for her school project, I have a means of showing you them. This is they. They, them. Like little larva, all rich and succulent.

Not having yours? More for me, then.
