Glad you had a a WOW response
Glad you had a a WOW response! I felt the same way when I discovered it. There it was, and I said to myself - I'll die of grief on the spot if it gets away without me getting a photo and later ID. Fortunately it was quite cooperative. More and more as I go out looking does it get proven to me the truth of that corny saying, "You don't have to go to the tropics to find exotic things."

i had something get away from me once
I have scoured the web, here, MPG, everywhere and darned if I have ever found it..makes me I know what you mean.
