Sometimes it's hard to tell......
Though I will have to admit that micros are not on the top of my list as a favorite cache type and I have recently seen some that really make me wonder what on earth the person who hid it was thinking, I remember the story behind the shrub and my sense of judgment goes away. The story of the "shrub cache" is that the owner of the cache placed it there in honor of her mother who had spent some time recovering from an illness at the location. The staff were wonderful to her and very interested in learning more about caching and thought that watching the activity of the cache would be fun. Though I found it an uncomfortable one to do myself because it was so in the open, I found the sentiment behind the placement to be very honorable.

Plus, not only are there some oddly placed microcaches, I have seen many odd and inappropriately placed caches of all types. But then again, isn't that one of the exciting aspects of the "sport" - the diversity of it all makes it very interesting.
