    It's a risky place this dog's water bowl! :eek:

    This beetle wasn't in a rip, but just couldn't swim through this stuff or find a way out.

    So I rescued him (her?). :smile:

    Meanwhile, Toby (our Foxy Pug) was too busy 'day dreaming' to notice a beetle was having a paddle in his water bowl.

    "Oh, look out for that hungry spider!" :eek:

    OB291343-tl-cr-s.


    Ah, he's seen it & will stay clear of that hungry, hairy beast.

    All taken with E-M5, M60 macro lens & diffused FL36R flash (FP-TTL mode).

    I hope it was entertaining enough for you. ;)
