Helloooo, people Smile

Bah…I just couldn't settle down to some good EPZing this week. I tried catching up on pics but only managed in blibs and blobs...and I just couldn't bring myself to upload without having caught up first.

Now that I'm up to speed, here's something for Saturday: the same beetle which featured in the last Silly Sunday upload.

I noticed its shadow later on and decided the critter should take centrestage today Smile

Andrew

EDIT: My initial title was gonna be "The Milkman" 'cos of FeFe's comment the previous Sunday. Later on I came up with 'Critterus shadowii'. I'm gonna revert to my original title of "The Milkman" Smile
