I spoted this pair peering out from under a rotten log.

I Used a flash as there was not enough light. I followed a fellow trekers advice and used a high tech 4 ply tissue diffuser. I worked well. I had to experiment many times to get the photo.

I used Paintshop to crop, resize for TN, frame and add my scribble.
