Nikon D90 using my Nikon 60mm Micro Lens and 2 extension tubes

I found this little chap down by the sea in Dungeness, Rye, on a piece of rusty track so I have named it ‘Sea Caterpillar’. I have no idea what it’s actual name is. If anyone has an idea please let me know!

I like the little hairs on his face, it looks like he has bushy eyebrows :o)
