Elusive Beasts

I was on the track down of an elusive and prolific beast -- one that's common but camouflages itself so well that you can be staring right at it and not see it.

I knew that no matter how dedicatedly I hunted it, no matter how many hours or days I spent on the trail, I would miss many of the pestiferous things.

     Using Karen's spotter notes, I culled all she discovered but in the process found a whole lot more of the pests. They breed, I think, as soon as you turn a page.
