its "opal eye" looks amazingly beautiful – like a real gem! and it's always strangely touching to see how those rather tiny creatures use all the strength of their fragile-looking limbs to cling on to whatever place they've just found comfortable! a really great capture, mark! enjoy your trip! greetings, sabine.
