Bob,

Oh, this is one real masterpiece, Bob. The reflections in the "eys". Remember faintly a film that "popularizes" the development of eyes; gathering light, registering movement

This photo is not only a superb macro/micro/closeup study. It also tells a story. I makes you feel aquainted with this very successful kind of beings.

They'll still be around when the predators have blown themselves to pieces. In stead of a spine and flesh they have shields to protect them

Such a picture. Bombombombom

Natural light or?

Anyhow. Thanks. Enlightening, a significant photograph

Torgny

PS I try not to fall into the anthropomorphizing trap, but to put it the american way: "This little guy needs a shave". Been here too long, I suppose :-)

If those things were the size of a cessna, we'd all be in trouble! Very nice shot! Robert
