    1. Eheheh ;) I Must say thanks for reminding me! This was captured a few days ago, oddly standing upon the flower. I was chasing one and when I looked back to a nearby flower branch there was it ;) Not so common to spot it like this. (The image has 90ºCW rotation) Posted 3 years ago, modified 3 years ago
      1. Possibly the little bit of wing damage having an effect.
