Any of these critters that have such iridescence are incredible! Gotta love Mother Nature!
Ray: Nature is wonderful and diverse.

The small world is so fascinating, Ray. The wings look like petrol on water.... Love the colours of this flying 'pest'....
Ray: One of the most colourful and entertaining of garden dwellers, Astrid...but, tiny!
Quelles jolies couleurs !
Ray: Merci, Martine.
His iridescence fascinates me, Ray. I suppose Mother Nature has a reason for it...other than for the sheer beauty of it?
Ray: A tiny beast, Ginnie, but he catches the eye.

It's the amazing iridescent body that does it for me. If only I could have my car sprayed thus..
Ray: Now that would be a car worth seeing, Chris.

Not the prettiest of things despite its effort with its wings. Must try harder.
Ray: A successful beast, Alan, so the costume seems to be working. smile

Love the detail of the venation in the wings - I guess this is what you meant - plus the sheen
Ray: He is a colourful package, Lisl...with these two images I was concentrating on the wings, but the body and eyes are also attention-grabbers.
Magnifique couleur pour cette petite bête ..
Bonne journée
Ray: Merci, Claudine.

Whoever thought of the name fly was a genius Ray.
Ray: I hear you, Chad.

That person might have called us walks.
Ray: ...and, called fish Swim...

I love the fluorescent body of this fly - what a variety of inhabitants in your gardne!
Ray: I doubt I could count the species of animals in the garden, Philine.
A glossy little animal!
Ray: Highly polished, Tom.
I have sheets of glass identical to it's wings. I will take a shot sometime.
Ray: Like a drop of oil on the surface of a puddle...

There is a fishing fly that looks like this - never had much success with it.
Ray: The fish probably think it is metal, Louis.
I like those green eyes...
Ray: Its eyes are stunning objects, Larry.
Wonderful iridescent colour Ray
Ray: A tiny critter, Bill, but he surely knows how to get attention!
