Hi Nicky!

Such a wonderful sighting.

These miniature 4x4's are fascinating creatures. If you have ever paused to watch one trying to push a ball of dung over a little rise – head down and back legs up – you will know exactly what I mean.

Giving up is rarely an option, even when its precious cargo keeps rolling back down the incline and he is forced to start his ascent all over again.

Fascinating creatures, but I still need to see how they use the milkyway as a "stellar" gps :lol:
