    1. ...it only makes me appreciate your mug shot more. It's superior in every way. Posted one year 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!
