Thanks, Craig. Found this close up stored on my phone. I didn't have a macro lens when I shot this particular shot, I expect to get some better ones next year.

Incredible specimen and a really nice plant and habitat shot Mario! Any chance of adding some more, with close ups of the plant and flowers?
