I must admit I prefer this image rather than a single insect.
There is another world getting on with life that us mortals never have the time to stop and observe.

I agree totally with Barbara's remarks today: interesting to see the two different species together, perhaps just a little wary of each other?
Very fine detail as always from you, Carol.
