Eye Flyer

Went to Westonbirt Arboretum on Friday to see the autumn colours, got a few which I will pop up over time. But just as we were walking out we say this beauty flying around, we watched for a while and then he settled down so I snapped him up. He was very kind and stayed for ages.

I think I saw one just like him yesterday buzzing about the gift store at the Hannover Germany zoo. This seems to be the season for discovering all sorts of new insects smile Brilliant!
Nigel Clack: Cheers Kathryn, I'm glad they're buzzing about.
