Yeah they really are. I had to get really close to get this picture and suprisingly it just sat there and let me get about an inch away of it! They are very remarkable and I think under appreciated because they are seen as "evil". Haha but this one was quit docile.

What a lovely, clear picture. I'm far too wussy for those - always primed to dash off. They really are quite striking, once you stand still long enough to see them, aren't they?
