This is one of those SURPRISES - I knew there was something there but couldn't see it - don't know why - my instinct told me to take the photo - I took 2 and when I viewed the images - well, lets say I was extremely surprised. I don't know who this little critter is but those eyes are a pretty amazing colour and just a tad c r e e py - you just never know what you're going to find out there.

I've been a bit busy lately so haven't spent much time on the site so I hope all are well. Thank you so much to all who have ever taken the time to vote and comment - you're appreciated Grin


Be well and laugh lots and I look forward to looking at the fantastic photos on the site

I've attempted some research but have not as yet found out who this little critter is. I too think he is fascinating. The body looks somewhat mother-of-pearlish. It may be a tick - not sure yet.

Thanks heaps for the comments and votes Grin appreciate it
