Its fascinating that what would cause us misery seem to not worry other creatures. This one is getting stuck in oblivious to it all.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed Alan, nature is remarkable.

Holding on with all of his 6 legs/arms, Frank. To me it is always fun to see how they "land" and the "right runway". Nice catch.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Astrid, fascinating creatures.
Mr Bee knows what he is doing Frank ....well at least I hope he does
Frank L Croston.: Should do Bill.
