This little critter was quite small, and I didn't notice how hairy he was until I uploaded the images to the pc. As it's Silly Sunday, I have tagged this as 'nude/glamour', after all, he is in the nude, andI think he is rather glamorous Smile

UPDATE: For some reason I was convinced that today was Sunday! Thank you to Linda and Ken for enlightening me!

Macros bring out "Hairy" so well. I keep being surprised by how hairy flowers actually are. Love your strange little beetle. Great set. Wouldn't worry about the mix up re days of the week. Sometimes have to check the diary myself. Aren't we lucky not having to care?
