How beautifully you caught the textures and fine little hairs (are they hairs?)in these pictures. Amazing how you captured the softness and brilliant colour.

Fascinating! Isn't nature amazing?

Those little fuzzy guys sure look cute - I remember ones like this when I was little. I wouldn't believe how these change when they grow up!

These are excellent shots, Chey! I haven't been out to see what's occupying our garden these days, other than the large garden spiders...useful, but annoying when I walk into their webs.

Hey I used to have a student who sported a "do" just like that last pic including the same color! Fascinating creepy crawly.

Brilliant photos. He looks cute, but are his hairs poisonous?

Hi Chey.
Very nice pictures of this little chap - simple and yet effective. What is it sitting on, on the top three pictures?
I just found your blog while browsing through some of "An Artists Garden" blogrolls, and thought I would say hi.
I added you to my RSS feeds, very nice images throughout your blog, I can't wait to see more.
My regards,
ESP.
