    1. ...it only makes me appreciate your mug shot more. It's superior in every way. Posted 5 months ago
      1. Ahw, appreciate that Ferdy, but my images do certainly not scale so well while zooming in *rolleyes*

        Even though this one has some artefacts, the detail of the structure of the cuticle is visible in great detail - very, very nice to be able to zoom in like that!
