i'm very fond of them... happy to see one

 
It was the first one
I've seen, but I can say that about a lot of insects. That's why this is so much fun: learning.

 
the biggest series i've ever collected at one spot...
...was from a dead [killed?] snake hanging over a wire fence, in se. Siberia --although other spp. mostly occur on feces/dung
