Thanks guys, I too thought it looked like something had just landed, and had opened it's door, poking up 3 eyes to look around. Nature sure is different sometimes. And what a shame you need to use a macro lens to capture it!

I will say in Martian now.

Beep, de-deep, OH! , de-beep, beep! Ardu-beeper per chure!

In English: This is fantastic! Oh! I agree. And what a stylish martian it is. I'd love that hat! And that high collared yellow blouse is to die for!

:D

Here's to you, Debbie! I agree with you. Some of the most beautiful things live in the tiny world of Macroland! Sad but lucky for us you have a camera... :) !!!!

Nothing like a macro to open up a whole new absolutely amazing world that our poor feeble eyes miss entirely. I'm always amazed at what lies beyond our vision - let's hear it for macro lenses!!! Yaaaaayyy! :) Superbly executed, Debbie - it doesn't get better than this! Congratulations - hope when we see it next, it's wearing deserved GOLD!
