Just like Itchyfingers didn’t think that doggie can really lie on the ground flat like a carpet until we saw it ourselves, we didn’t think that they can lie flat on their backs without being made to pose so unnaturally by their owners or perhaps some computer manipulating was being done. But really, seeing is believing. This time we saw a kitty lying flat like a rug with our own eyes…Oh my, and this is really cute!
We were playing with our sweet car park warden, the Fat Lady Dusty, when
she started to roll over on its back…See how happy she looked!
And then she kept still like this for a while…This is just so cute! We have
seen kitties rolling on its back before but none of them lie so completely flat
on the back like a rug with the forelimbs folded like this! Super cute!
Normally the idiom to “lie like a rug” means to tell lies shamelessly. But body language tells no lies. For cats to exhibit this rolling on their backs and exposing their tummies behaviour is simply a sign that they are completely comfortable with their environment. As their tummies are the most vulnerable spot, if they were to show it to human, it means that they trust you and are inviting you for a tummy rub.
So now I know all the cute photos of dogs and cats lying on their back sleeping soundly are real…hahah…

Itchyfingers were at Bangkok’s National Stadium BTS Station when we saw this super cute sight…I have seen photos of cuties in these poses but I have always thought it was somehow digitally manipulated or someone must have arranged for the pose. But now I do believe it is for real and comes naturally…hahah…Cannot blame Itchyfingers lah! We don’t own any doggie!
I don’t mind dogs though I prefer cats anytime…Normally I would keep a
distance away from bigger dogs, especially strays. But this one was so cute and
completely in his own dream world so I got bolder and went closer to shoot
him from all different angles….
We were the only ones who stopped and took his sleeping carpet position, though some people did turn and took a look at him. Maybe he was such a common sight there at the station that people were so used to him? About a month later, I saw on my friend’s Facebook page a picture of this doggie sleeping at the station again, though not exactly this carpet position…hahha….So I guess he must be a regular there. Next time when you are in Bangkok, take the BTS to National Stadium Station and you might bump into this cute doggie too! :D

Look at this photo. What do you see?
Did you see an eye?
For those who guessed the Stick Insect, no, it’s not a Sticky… This is actually a spider!
Called the Whip Spider (Argyrodes flagellum), it lives in the low vegetation in mangrove swamp. This should be a female and it’s quite small…Itchyfingers were actually looking for another spider when we accidentally stumbled upon this one. We wouldn’t have spotted it if it did not move, cos it was so thin and well hidden…and with legs all stretched out close to the body, who would have imagine it to be a spider? Luckily, we have seen photos of this species before, and it was one of the spiders that we had wanted to find. Though we were lucky to find one, it was a very windy day and that was not good at all for macro photography…Ended up with many blurred photos…
Seems like Itchyfingers will need more luck to find another chance to shoot this spider…
