Tiny Stilt Fly studies the leaf...perhaps diagnosing the cause of the light green mould on it. These attractive critters can always be found in the garden, but are so small and active that photographing them is an on-going challenge for me.

Elle a de jolies couleurs.
Ray: Un insecte minuscule, mais très joli, et toujours dans le jardin, Martine.
Brilliant, love those colours!
Ray: Thank you, KK. There is nothing drab about these little gems.

We'll, in that case you did well to get this. The colours are beautiful but not keen on flies. That is rather unfortunate because for every human on the planet, there are 13 million flies.
Ray: Ha Ha

I think they may be better World Citizens than Humans seem to be, Alan.
Bravo ...cette petite bête est bien jolie
Ray: Oui ... une beauté, bien sûr, Claudine.

Good effort but blimey - a hard task to capture..
Ray: I keep trying for a good image, Chris.
New to me, I wonder why they have evolved in such a way
Ray: I believe it will be, mainly, about improving opportunities for sex, Martin.

the glittering green is wonderful. You seem to be in Germany?
Ray: It is a most attractive, little Garden Gem, Philine.

SC often thinks I am in Germany, but I have never been there.
You have done well here Ray. Wonderful iridescent colours
Ray: They are so tiny that you could fit 2 or 3 on your thumb-nail, Bill, but their colors still make them easy to find.
Great colour isn't it. I guess they don't stay anywhere long enough to do much more than a grab shot.
Ray: Yes...Grab Shot is right, Brian.
The are always on the move and impossible for me so I loudly applaud your photo.
Ray: I was after the wings with this shot, and was delighted to get them, Mary.
i like the iridescence on its wings, Ray
