    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 No! Not another in difficulty again! :doh:


    Rescued again!


    Trying to dry off while negotiating a hairy forest.


    Now happy outside on a Gardenia leaf.


    Let's take a closer look to see if he's happy (a crop of the above photo).


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


    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. ;)
