I found this tiny little chappie amongst the undergrowth whist I was working in the garden a couple of days ago. He was barely as big as my thumbnail, but I thought I would try and capture him on camera. He obliged by popping his face over a stone, and here is the result!

Update, 9.45 am........ Have just been without electricity for the past two hours, due to the appalling weather here. We have a strong wind, together with hail and snow, and the wind always plays havoc with our power supply. So, only clicking and running when power allows today, hope to resume normal service soon!

This is a super close-up capture Carol. Bit of a change for you I think. But a super shot nonetheless. Have a great day Smile
