Finally caught her out of her log :)

Recently acquired beautiful P. sazimai from @BoyFromLA. Rehoused her a little over a week ago and I think she's finally settled in (enough to come out of her hole, anyway....)!
I've seen such variability in the female's blue color, some quite good, some quite drab. Who knows why, molt cycle, type of camera, flash etc etc etc
 
@viper69 the flash definitely plays a role in the vivid blue in this shot, but she did also just recently molt so she's looking super clean here
 
@viper69 In my experience, it's the camera. I've got one that is just a typical purple-ish brown under my phone camera, but lights up like a Christmas tree under my actual camera. As is the nature of iridescence :p
