Every little hair....oh well :-(
Not just that though. The lighting, the background, etc. etc. Are you putting these backlit pics into a collection somewhere?

As always, stunning capture of a stunning specimen to make me even more envious of where you are!

Getting towards the end of the season here in the UK now... Internet is down at home for a week+ now following a thunder storm so can't upload Sad

Off to Switzerland tomorrow for 2 weeks and then I plan my return to France next year to look for beauties like these!

I also have another contact in south of France who has promised me details on some of his secret places for some rare stuff there in the Var region!
