Look what I just did

One small step for entomological giant leap for little old me!

This is, with my camera skills, an amazing achievement. It might look like a grotty old bug to you (which it kinda is in truth) but it's an important grotty old bug. This is a shot of the face of the type specimen of Vates amazonicus (Westwood, 1889). That's a species of praying mantis for those that don't speak latin ;) and in real life it has a tiny head so getting a good shot of it is pretty difficult.
So yes, this is me just being chuffed and gloating but its taken me years to get my camera skills to this point and I just had to share.
