Beautiful specimen
I found one but wasn't able to point it as you did here. Any secretes to how you pulled this off?

Also, I'm shocked to see this species extends all the way to Alaska. I live ion New Hampshire and we have them here, too.

Nothing unusual about the pointing - elmer's glue that is slightly tacky (let it dry just a little so it's not runny and then it binds tightly to the specimen, which itself must be totally dry). Best!
