But isn't that the beauty of nature? That something so beautiful can come of something so ugly? The Swan, baby coots (!) even most babies look like Winston Churchill at birth, apart from mine of course (hehe).
I'm personally a great believer in beauty being skin deep so have to disagree with you, but you have captured a great shot, brilliant detail for something so small. Are they against glass?
Thank you for sharing this interesting post, and funny note!

Its a wicked photo Radu,but how on earth did you get it?You haven't got one of those surgical camera thingys for looking up peoples bottoms and stuff?
Oh yeah...through glass...right.
We have nothing like this in New Zealand.
We actually have only 2 native mammals,both bats,and one of them,instead of flying,just scrambles around on the ground all night.Very strange.
Good post anyway...Thanks.

I remember those weird creatures from few documentaries which I saw on Discovery Channel. Very interesting but not cute for sure :-) On your pictures they're looks relaxed and happy.

How could you even consider such words - the first rat, with his hand on his heart, seems to be saying to you!
I know these guys well from photographs and video material, and they ARE more than disgusting, Very nice catch, great, moody lighting, and those horrible little hands . . . touching, probing, feeling . .

Looks like something out of a Stephen King thriller, but that too is reality. It wasn't so bad for me until I read Gert's last line...
Good image Radu, one I will try to forget. TFS

Very unusual work. I think you did a great job to capture the "freakshow" look here. Well done.
am vazut-o pentru prima data: m-am gandit mult cum s-o comentez. n-am gasit cuvinte potrivite. au mai trecut trei zile, iarasi privesc si din nou am aceiasi problema. e super. ceva grotesc. mi se asociaza cu evul mediu, cu cavouri, cu masti ... nu pot nici de cum sa-mi amintesc de numele unui pictor ce crea in acest stil - Hieronymus Bosch!

It looks like exhibit in biology class. You know formaline jar with sickening things inside.
But this is probably one of the most interesting... and weird photos on TN.
I don't know why I'm saying this, but I like it ;)

I found your photo when searching for bizarre animals or plants for my new group "nature's oddities"
Thanks for sharing, your photo made me think of 'Raphael's paintings I.e . Lots of flesh :-)
