These critters are so very small, and usually green, so I rarely spot them. However, the red and black caught my eye (justSmile) so I attempted a couple of shots. Not good as he was too small, but I felt worthy of a show.

I'd probably never even have spotted him, Carol, never mind get a photo, so you have done pretty well.

Mornin' Carol,
I reckon you have polished the coat on this one tooWink

Sat at work, waiting for the temp to rise - the painters can't paint the roof steel until it is above 3C - the steel, not the air temp - until the steel is painted the new roof can't be installed - bloody frustratingSad
The wind is increasing again -+3C at the mo
