I'm not surprised he's trying to surrender with you shooting away at him, he must have thought your camera clicking away was machine gun fire!Wink Another top quality macro Brian and you nose it!

Pinocchio puts up his hands and admits to being a liar in the hopes of reducing the length of his noseWink!
It could also be interpreted as an astonished stance due to encountering the big leaf spikeGrin.
Perfect timing, Brian.

A truly magnificent macro Brian!
Title reminds me of the Tommy Cooper joke about the nearsighted bank robber; Runs into the bank, waves his gun and shouts: "Stick em up!...........are they up?" Smile
