Hello Lou,
A fine macro of a millepede making a nesting chamber, not seen before on TN!
This is not at all a bad picture: the POV sharpness and lighting are all excellent!
Thanks for this excellent contribution to TN!
Best regards,

Hi Lou,

Fascinating to see how this millipede builds his house! I love his position in 3/4 of a circle. Nothing at all wrong with this picture. Colors and details are fine. I can even see water droplets on his body. Very interesting and unique post.
