…and THIS is why i don’t get anything finished!!!! i’m in the middle of grouting/sealing the tiles in the bathroom.. and put some rubbish out in the bin… happened to walk past my 6’ ginormous potted tomato plant growing like something out of Day of the Triffids…and spied this little guy feasting on a tiny little new tomato (no bigger than a pea)!!!!

….and ‘faint’ and ‘gasp’ … i manually focused!!!!

    You got the focus perfect! Hard to imagine it that small, but it is so neat! Your priorites are fine, the grouting can wait.
