They are noting the bluntness of this wire and wondering why we make so much fuss about it.
Lisl: An off-beat comment, Chad
Such a beautiful image, and so clever to have captured it so well.

Stunning image. However did you find two? This a likey for me. I want to see it again and again.
Lisl: I was lucky - they had just finished mating, so they found each other so to speak. I feel very honoured that you should make this a likey - thank you

It really shows just how small these things are. That barbed wire fence probably seems like an A road to them! Beautiful detail in this.
Lisl: Yes - the barbed wire does give a very good sense of their size. Thank you, Alan
