Hi Jeff,

Thanks for sharing your photos. Unfortunately only one came through the online form so that is all I can share. If you can send more photos that would be cool. Thanks for adding Woodbury, TN to our distribution map.

Oh and the scientific term for the three simple eyes are known as Oscelli.
