Tuesday Crusty: Fuzzy vizzie

Good photos do not come easily. The page notes:

This image of a live three-week-old specimen was one of thousands Waller took.

When this went around on Facebook, friend of the blog Al Dove mentioned he got an honorable mention in a different competition for a picture of these beasts, but even younger:
