I have had to say a final farewell to my camera. "It would be uneconomical to repair" I was dryly informed. So this link sent to me by SkinnyLaMinx came just at the right time. Imagine your common garden variety slug visitor (of which I have many) looked like this, from tokyocube.
We'd be in a right old spot of bother. I'd have to give up my all consuming extermination campaign and go for peace, lurve and a sluggery.
