We need more than one photo and total length. This looks like a male to me.

I'm thinking a queen now, but the pictures are still blurry. Is there any way you can take clearer ones?

I will try just that the closer I get the more unfocus the picture becomes, I'm using an iPhone 6 phone :roll:

Don't necessarily get closer, just get a clear photo.
