Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Hanging from her silk thread & swinging in the wind until climbing up & onto a Honeysuckle leaf. *This girl is so exquisite I took photos of her @ every angle. **I NEVER use effects & the only editing I do is crop and/or rotate. Each photo is extraordinary because she appears different from each angle! I call her "The Squirrelipillar", bcoz of her shape! :- ) (⅜"/9mm=CONTRACTED//½"/12mm/1.2km=STRETCHED).
