It noticed me, though upside down, but I continued to take time to setup tripod and extension tubes, and to clear blockages.
It was busy gnawing, chewing and eating while I was busy snapping; no, this little bug seemed to be curious again about the passer-by but wasted only another second or two.
I had then sacrificed a whole piece of flower in return for a high level of photographic satisfaction, but a flower a day keeps my cucumber away, that is not good.
It was however good not to see the bug again the following day.
It suffered from indigestion after a heavy meal.
