Superb specimens Hewi !

As much as males are ALWAYS dazzling
to the senses; females are gracefully
beautiful and much less often seen in
most personal collections.

Thank you Bob for kindly keeping me in mind !

As you can see these little tropical "buggers" are
rather pricey for such little things these days....

I picked up a few exotics over the last 5 years when no one else knew what they were selling; so they came cheap. It's a cite' different now (these last couple years);
so I don't bother with them anymore.
