This has to be the strangest creature I`ve seen in my garden.. At first I thought it was a tiny snake.. Then it started waving its head at me.. I must admit it scared me a bit lol..
It posed on a piece of cardboard for a few one handed macro shots.. then I watched him crawl away Smile
Thanks for all the c and c`s on my last upload, very much appreciated xxxxxxx
