Not a nice surprise


When I was taking the macro’s of the butterflies my wife notice3d something moving in a wall crack behind me. So I took some snaps as it emerged. Enjoy??

Fabulous photo's once again,it reminds of when I worked as a marine plumber in the Royal Naval Base here in Portsmouth.I had a job in the main galley in an aircraft carrier which had been laid up for a time,as I stepped on to the deck which appeared black,it moved.Thousands upon thousands of cockroaches.Thanks for the memories.
