Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Another example of superb macro photography.

Doing what comes naturally I think.
Strangely enough we had what I think was maybe the Queen (huge anyway nearly as big as a wren) trapped in our lounge. Alan managed to free her so I hope she finds her folk.
