I think this pool of your's is proving an excellent way of capturing so many of your subjects, Carol, and this wee fella must have been grateful for being rescued and was willing to pose.
Most extraordinary critters they are, such an odd appearance.
Nice set of shots, well captured, V 2 my favourite followed by V 4.
