Yes, good to see the flash works.
Oh, I recall your one now, with the golden G string or some similar description. I've seen one like that also (but without my camera). I didn't realize they were the same. Thanks Argy Bee.

The markings on the abdomen vary a fair bit. Apparently it exists in Brasil as well as here but they might have diverged.
