    Playing peek-a-boo. You certainly are a fan of Nature’s little people, Trish. His backyard looks interesting too, with all those little decorations. And I love his house.

  • Thank you Gary ! Indeed I do love little creatures … as well as the ability of a digital camera to bring them closer and larger than life :) His tastefully decorated house blends well with his surroundings. He was quite a bit bigger than the tiny ones more often seen.

    Wonderful capture Trish !!! ☺♥

  • Evita, thanks so much for your wonderful words and favourite ! This little fellow was being rolled gently by little waves lapping at the shore. After each roll he would regain equilibrium, stretch his legs out and continue on his way :)
