I was coming back from filling the water pond for our possible guests, and saw this little fellow (at one inch long, he is, indeed, VERY tiny). He was nearly invisible because he was so tiny, and nearly completely blended in with the background. Of course my trusty iPhone was in my pocket, so I whipped it out to do his portrait. He was very cooperative, so I got down beneath him and shot up towards the ceiling of the deck – it was the perfect background.
Not sure how long he stayed there; he seemed in no hurry to go anywhere. It was time to fix our Special Sunday Breakfast, so I just sent the photo off to myself and got busy cooking.
I looked just now and he was gone, but he probably had urgent business to attend to elsewhere.
I was fairly surprised when I pulled the photo up on my computer to see how very intricate and colorful he is. I punched up the volume a bit, but didn’t do anything to his colors. Aren’t they amazing?
