Hi Tobi,
Excellent photos. It’s difficult to take such pictures with so reflective and very different areas .

Tobi,

It is awesome to see the progression you have made in taking pictures of your specimens. The improvement I see in comparing the pictures you first posted and the latest ones you have posted is amazing. Keep up the great photos, and I always look forward to seeing more of your collection!!!
