Such a change from the evil weevil of two days ago Smile. This dear little clanger, barely half the length of my little finger nail, was clinging to the side of the pool yesterday, begging to be rescued.

Seeing these wee critters so large on the screen, it's hard to believe just how small they are, Carol: and what's more it shows just how good the macro facilities of the Lumix are in your capable hands.
And another pool rescue to add to your laurelsSmile

more exciting closeups, wouldn't it be for the lichen you think they are giants. I like specially how he's clanging on in V2, but of course they are all very good and detailed

Looks like s/he (how would one know?) has survived the near death experience and is thriving and ready to do battle with vegetation!

Especially like v3 of these for that lovely diagonal compo, detail, and lovely bokeh.
