A lovely damsel fly with hairy legs Kevin and nice stigma.
I reckon its an Ebony Jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata) but could be owt really.
Jethro, Thank you, kind sir. I concur with your findings on the name. How about those hairy legs? I was very pleased to get a photo sharp enough to see that detail!
No mate, those hairy legs just don't cut it compared to this one!
Not sure what the critter is though.
HAHAHAHA, Jethro!! Your's win by a mile!
I'd be more scared of this than the spider, but had to comment because it's colour is nice. Jethro's looks like a little chrome fighting machine.
T's SB, are you joking??!! You wouldn't be frightened by an overgrown fly would you? At least you can hear the fly when it is near ... those creepy, crawly spiders can get on you without you ever knowing!
WOW. Wonderful macro!
Thanks, Liam! I feel very lucky to have gotten this ... they're quick buggers!
