Boy is that a unique macro! Kinda makes my flowers look sort of wimpy! How close did you have to stand?

Sallie, I was about 6 feet away and I also used my zoom lens. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

That is an extraordinary macro subject. The snout looks so shiny and slimey. **shiver

Thanks, Gemma. I should have put a "gross alert" along with the photo :)

I normally do flowers but when I came across this snout, I couldn't resist :)
