    Yeah, yeah -- funny guys.
    They're chrysalises (I guess that's the plural) :p
    And I know y'all knew that, but this recent topic gives me an excuse to post a coupla photos from last year.

    I've seen one chrysalis so far this year and a few caterpillars -- nothing like the profusion we had last year, although we've had plenty of monarchs flutterin' around.

    We have about 10-14 days until we see the butterfies.

    Nah, I'm never really in a scenario where I need steel toe. I considered getting Jocko Willink's company's boots https://originmaine.com/ but I decided to stick with what I know, Danner.

    You don't mind all the extra weight, sweating, and temperature transfer wearing them day to day? When it's cold and you're walking through snow with steel toe your toes get extra frosty 😜

    They're insulated -- I pretty much wear them in winter and they are very warm.
    I love them, as a matter of fact.

    My son loves bugs. First one we've ever seen. We spent the morning biking in trails looking for snakes.

    ^^ I can appreciate your sons fondness for insects. I was 10 yrs old at the time (early 60’s) when I won a red ribbon at the KY Fair for my 4H Entomology project.

    Holy moly. I'm good on spending what looks like up to $1,500 on a pair of boots. $300 is plenty for me.

    Do you own a pair of Dehners?

    No I do not. If I was in law enforcement, military, or a rancher/rider like 'ol Dutch, I'd consider a pair. :) I'm a slip-on penny loafer, tennis shoe, golf shoe, city guy. :)
