Thanks for viewing my pictures and taking the time to comment.Much appreciated!
I’m a dutch artist and nature-photographer(especially macro)currently based in N-Spain.
well hello to you too … is that a tiny mite between his antennae or part of his head? … and the black spots in the eyes, are they actually pupils?
No,it’s not a mite,but one of 3 extra eyes.I have no idea why they have these…The black spots are called false pupils.
