  2. Hi Gunilla!! Great shots of this fascinating little creature!! Is it caught in a spider's web? Or is this it's own home?

    1. Thank you Mitchy! There were several of these bugs inside the thistle seeds. It looked like they were hiding in there.

    1. Tack Ulla! Jag förväntade mig inte heller att hitta den inne i fröna, men som tur var den ju så liten. :)

  11. The thistle all around him makes this looks like a texture was applied to the image. I love it!
