  1. That's quite a difference in color for the adults between this and the bronze one! Posted 6 months ago
    1. Yes, this species is really quite variable in colour. This is a bit of an inbetweeny but they also come in brighter green and blue, to almost blackish. I don't seem to have good images of all colours so should make a note to get these at some point :o) Posted 6 months ago
      1. I read that there are even some purple ones! Posted 6 months ago
        1. I think the "purple" ones are inbetweenies for blue and the "bronze" ;o) Posted 6 months ago, modified 6 months ago

              1. Well, it's a great word and I'm going to start using it. Posted 6 months ago
                1. Happy to contribute :o) Posted 6 months ago
