Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Photo Challenge# 82, October 13, 2015

Yves here. I am subbing for Neekneraj for an unspecified amount of time while he works on his new book. If anyone is interested in subbing for this prompt or alternating with me please let me know. Many years ago my husband came to me trying to explain a bizarre bird/insect he’d seen outside. It sounded made up and when he showed me an image, it was too strange for fiction. For this prompt we are going to do something a little bit different. You can write about this charming little oddity (fact or fiction) or you can go out into your own garden/city and find something bizarre/fantastical to photograph (if possible) and write about. It can be an animal, insect, person, building, food/beverage, festival etc. Something mysterious from the Deep Sea perhaps? The ocean is full of weird, horrifying, and wonderful creatures.

      I’ll reply to myself since I’m awaiting moderation. Hope all went well with the tests (my time frame is off, so goes well?).
      That’s great Pat will perhaps be part of the MMMLM team. Hope Neekneraj’s book goes well.
