Thanks all for the nice comments. It was a venustum like this with a red pouch that inspired me to start collecting and studying them. When the colors are saturated dark like this, it is a showstopper indeed.

Prior to these dark color forms, I used to pass them by without any reaction. Now I can't pass by without staring at it. Vinnie screams 'Look at me!' LOL.

He focuses on the color break. The doctor mocks me.
Tony, I'm not mocking you lol, just playing with words.

I should have seen the pouch color streak as a judge, but my nepotistic eyes were too focus on the overall bright intense colors. Your objective eyes are much appreciated.
