    1. Thanks Christine - that basically was created for myself to "learn" the variation within the species from looking at collection specimen. We don't have the species here, so no chance to learn that in the field ;o) Posted 23 days ago
      1. The detail is fantastic. You could seriously make an awesome book with all your detailed photos. Posted 23 days ago
