Oh My....lovely coloring!! 

Superb image :)  

Nice find, and shot.

What an attractive Bupestrid!! Great capture, Tony.

Thanks folks.

Bupestrid sounds right Stu; that's how I had been calling it for years. But just today saw that is BupRestid which doesn't flow of the tongue so easily.

You got me! I've made that mistake before and didn't learn my lesson. 

Whoa, what a beauty! Superb, Tony!
