This charmer came to say hello while I was walking through the kitchen. It kindly made it's way down from a bin to the floor, which meant I was spread-eagled on the floor while taking it's portrait. It knew how to pose, thankfully.

Aperture: F10

Notes: Oly E-M1ii, Oly 60mm Macro, Godox V350 flash. No time to grab a lighting modifier, and it was too fast for a focus stack. So this is just flash.
