    I was moving in for a shot on a jumping spider, who.. well.. jumped away into some leaf litter, and I noticed this little spec of dirt crawling around :)

    It's incredible, there's no way you'd ever see him if he wasn't moving. He's piled up dirt from around the area over his back, like a ghillie suit. I'm loving this photography stuff more and more every day :)

    That's just too cool. I don't know what else to say but ... "to the dirtmobile!"

    my preemptive apologies ;)

    Wow, just when you thought your backyard couldn't get more alien, this guy makes another apperance. Not sure if this was material he picked up for camo or what, he wasn't too hard to spot on this leaf.

    How odd!

    The white thingy looks like, err, a sea ananome?

    Anyhoo, here is a slightly more down to earth beetle type thingy!

    That's one weird bug. I guess this proves that aliens have arrived on earth. ;)
