Same here. ;-) A small mirror can help.

Thanks Mark. I know all the angles to take pictures of reptiles and amphibians for identification purposes but never thought about identifying organisms like these when the picture was taken. Now I know. Feel free to give any other tips for identification that my photos are lacking. I'm old, but not too old to learn :-)

Reminds me of Coltricia sp. (?Coltricia perennis) but we would need to see the underside.
