Wacky Wednesday

Does this look like a feather to you, I thought so too and tried to take it off the plant and guess what it was moving. This I learned is the woolly aphid. These suck the sap of the plants and kill them.

I notice they had completely colonized one branch of this small plant and proceeded to paint the stem with soap water and oil solution. I did that a four times in the last two weeks and my plant is looking healthy again.

I also made sure that none of the other plants had this rather strange creature on them. Do you think this is wacky enough for Wednesday?
