Nice shot..
these guys are very nervous and active. The only way I can photograph them is to make them drunk on ethyl acetate!

 
Yeah,
Roger that. In any shot I took of these characters I had to hunt specifically for them during a shooting session until they actually sat still for a few seconds, then quickly (or as quickly as I was able) take a Hail Mary or sometimes two, if I was unusually lucky. They are a bear...

typo in title, should be chloroticus
as far as sci. names are concerned, typing is a recipe for typos
whenever i do, i make errors

mouse-dragging [or copy-n'pasting] names from a trusted, proofread 'official' source is the only way i know that helps minimize such mishaps

 
Again,
another bad day at the keyboard. The worst part is I had the bloody words right in front of me!
