Everyone knows a slater – that odd ‘land crustacean’ from the garden that you poked and prodded when you were a kid, watching in amusement as it curled up into a tiny armoured ball. Decades later, as I photographed this critter, I still watched in amusement as it did its thing. Some things don’t change!
