  • When the seasons change, the crawlers know it. That’s the signal for them to move from the leaves, back to the twigs.
  • Note: I wanted to show the “bug in a bug” story first. So people get the embedded idea. We could add a slide after this one that replaces the bug illustrations with your photos. For a contrast between the illustration slide (which is diagram-like) and the photo slide (which shows reality).
  • Text for the drawing:All of this happens everywhere around us without notice.
