Good morning....
Thank you so much to everyone for the votes and comments on my lion series, glad you liked them....also a big thank you to Irish Kate for her UA, much appreciated.
One for CarolG this morning.....
Today a little grass critter I captured while we were stopped for a coffee break. I was photographing a little wild flower next to the vehicle and then decided to photography this grass seed head, what a surprise when I discovered this little guy...the size of a pin head....quite impressed with the lens. No idea what this little guy is

He looks like a little juvenile shield bug, Colleen, and how well you have captured him with all the furry detail on his back. Two super images, very well done SmileSmileSmile Carol
