Fist of all, apologies for the lat upload, woke to no electricity, a frequent occurrence here, I'm afraid Sad

Silly Sunday again, and what better critter to use than a clanger!
This fella had me laughing so much, I knew he was going to drop off the blade of grass as soon as I pointed the camera at him, and he didnít disappoint me! However, I did manage to get another couple of grab shots of him trying to make himself invisible from me.
When I came round to processing the images, I looked at V.1, and I am sure that he was making a very rude gesture with his finger at me before dive-bombing into the grass!
