“He’ll be coming round the leafie when he comes
He’ll be coming round the leafie when he comes
He’ll be coming round the leafie
He’ll be spiky and quite beefy
He’ll be coming round the leafie when he comes

Yippee aye aye, yippie yippie aye…”


Alrighty…now these 2 are from the archives…taken on May 18th last year. Pretty thing, huh? And look at those doleful ‘eyes’ Grin


Huge thanks to Julia (NaturesHaven) for her GEA on “Just Hangin’” Smile

Pamela (pamelajean), champion effort in trying to ID yesterday's critter! Thank you SO much for going to all that trouble. I reckon your 4th link – the BigStock one – is the one. At least I know it’s a leafhopper nymph and that’s satisfying enough Smile

Johanna (brownsilent), thanks for mentioning the cicada thing. We’ve got cicadas doing their singing thing around the place and I would’ve never made the connection. And I just had to name the hopper Edward ‘cos I love some of his (the human's) work Smile


Alrighty…I’m gonna upload and run and have an early night. Ooh, and I’ll be visiting my family friend’s place tomorrow morning where I’ll meet Fluffay Puppay again. Taking my E-PL1 this time and hope to get some good shots Smile

He's very whiskery but with cute bits growing out of his head. A sweetheart.

v1 is so cute - I love those spikes and the oof ones too - and they're yellow (my favourite colour). I'm now going to be singing along too for the rest of the day - and maybe tomorrow too. Smile Have a good day with that lovely puppy!

Two excellent macros, Andrew.
Must admit that the first one takes the biscuit. And I bet that, given half a chance, he would take the cream cakes and candy too Smile
