silly Sunday show-off!

By CarolG  
Fist of all, apologies for the lat upload, woke to no electricity, a frequent occurrence here, I'm afraid Sad

Silly Sunday again, and what better critter to use than a clanger!
This fella had me laughing so much, I knew he was going to drop off the blade of grass as soon as I pointed the camera at him, and he didnít disappoint me! However, I did manage to get another couple of grab shots of him trying to make himself invisible from me.
When I came round to processing the images, I looked at V.1, and I am sure that he was making a very rude gesture with his finger at me before dive-bombing into the grass!

You have elevated this species to Superstar status Carol, and this star appearance is particularly effective in confirming their status.

A show off indeed unless you've got yourself contorted to capture such splendid images.
How close do you get - your images never look as if they've been cropped?

Naughty clanger, no green soup for you if you continue to make gestures like that, and it's no use whistling back at Carol, go straight to your burrow, and Major Clanger will come and have words with youWink.
