Thank you
Appreciate the quick turnaround

 
OK
You are lucky that I know her very well and I know that you have already met her grandmother. She's the girl of my dreams, lol. (nightmares)

 
Now that I've looked her up
No wonder she was on my car and so cooperative. Very friendly species, at least the female is. Need to find a male now. And shame on me, I should have known the gender. This species needs a common name.
