Info Page
I've placed this image on the info page. Thanks.

Yep! I agree...
These are a male and female A. diadematus. Nice capture of them in close proximity; it provides a nice size comparison!

Me, too!
I agree both with the ID and the assessment that this is a spectacular image:-)

Thanks to both of you for the confimation and compliments.
