Can you image, how long I waited for getting this??
and this:
THAT was a torture ;-)...
But the happy feeling is the better the longer you have to wait!!

Finally. It's good to have a photo of this beauty and even to know its name. I've waited for this for almost a year now. Yes, I agree that it is quite common. But that's not good enough for a photographer because it seldom lands. You see something frequently and you can't have it. It's torturous.
Thanks bayucca!
