Thanks, Phil.

I tend to use the terms stereo and 3D interchangeably. I think you probably found the depth rather realistic, which was the plan

The longer shadows were from late afternoon sun. Unlike many species, which wait for the warmest part of the day to open, and close by mid afternoon, this one, once open, makes more of an afternoon of it. This is very different from the next species I will post, when I had about an hour.

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
