Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING
Casually scrolling Tumblr,Sees this post,
TT: Let’s rock.
all around me are familiar faces…
I swear, I ignored the notes and thought the gigapause was over.
He was drumming on an instrument in his car when I asked if I could talk with him. “Sure. Do you mind if I finish working out this beat first?” He tapped rhythmically with concentration. Then he looked up and smiled. “I just got this. I ordered it from Brazil. It’s called a Pandeiro.”
"How is it different than a tambourine?"
"The way you play it. Samba." He played for me again, then let me try it.
"Is this what you do? Are you a drummer?"
"Yeah. I play in a band called Pink Martini."
I just learned of the death of Derek Rieth, percussionist for the Portland band, Pink Martini.
I met Derek through Humans of Portland back in February. (http://on.fb.me/XZYMbJ)
The news of his tragic passing reminded me that I had unpublished photos from when we met. In memory of Derek, I wanted to publish them today.

My roommate bought a pack of 24 rolls of toilet paper yesterday, in addition to the half dozen we already had, and stored all of them in the bathroom. And just let me tell you, there’s something incredibly calming and reassuring about looking next to you while you’re on the toilet and seeing 30 rolls of toilet paper sitting there. You get a feeling like, no matter how bad shit gets in there, you’re always going to make it out okay in the end.
"you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.
pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company
meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names
