      Or hungry. Just for the record, no bugs were harmed in the making of this photo. I shook him off when I was finished shooting. Besides, there were several dozen waiting for their turn.

      I don't think I could have done it. Pesky little vermin. I used this shot on a page I did that also talks about a product that helps quell itching. (Products that Work.)

      A link to your work is included in the credits. Thank you!
