  1. It takes a true naturalist to feel guilty for not saving a mosquito :) Posted 7 months ago
    1. Lol, thanks :)

      It's more that I felt guilty for NOT feeling guilty, if that makes sense?

      1. Yes, it totally does. I prefer to not decide over a insect's life in any way if I can avoid it, but it will not lose sleep over it incidentally happening. I wouldn't sleep much if I would. Posted 7 months ago
