Hoover for ants

By annettep38  
When I was looking at the freshly welded garage door just before there was no light left, one of the builders shouted   VEEEE!!!
He was still in the bushes then but I ran to the house, grabbed the camera with the portrait lens (!) and then raced around the garden, dicing through hedges and ending up my belly in an anthill. Sadly enough we upset him before he could hoover that one up.

half a tin of tigerbalm later I am quite chuffed with my shots of this nightly garden guest.

Many thanks for your kind votes and comments for the sunrise over the Whitsundays.

Many thanks to Lynne, Graham and Isabel for their kind awards.

What a beauty Annette! What wouldn't I give to see an Armadillo strolling in my back yard...
They are rather prehistoric and very quirky... Super captures specially V1... Lovey work! GrinGrinGrin
