Messy Eater.

By Graham_P
An image taken at 9.30pm on Sunday evening, had to put down the glass of wine and grab the camera.
This guy had just hopped out of the pond to start his night shift keeping down the pests in the garden, looks like he'd forgoton to wipe his mouth after eating dinner!!.
He's not as pretty as the tiny ones Angie posts and i've explained he won't get many votes for looking cute, but never the less he deserves his five minutes of fame, and it's good to post something slightly different from normal.

Ps, he didn't choose a great b/g so i've given him one of those texture ones that seem to be doing the rounds.

Large+F11 if you'd like to get a little closer to him!!!!!

Amazing capture Graham and super duper processing. I think this is fab. Reminds me of Wind in the Willows LOL. I am so impressed and very envious. Will never be able to produce like this if I live to be 100.
