I poured some tap water over him to wash off the salt, and dried him off with a J-cloth. Afterward, he was quite content to sit on the cloth and watch me, so I took a couple of quick photos.
|"Thanks for the bath!"|
He was quite interested in the camera, and left the J-cloth to walk up my hand for a closer look.
These bugs are always so calm, and so interested in their surroundings; as curious as kittens, but without the brain power to account for it. I wonder what goes on in their tiny heads. And whether they remember what they just discovered. Will this guy, once he gets back inside, go for a drink in the tank again?
I put him outside in the rain; it's warm enough already, and the water's fresh.
