    Nice find Paul considering how small these things are. I found one a couple of years ago but couldn't get a good shot at it so well done.

    It was awkward - stood on a small leaf at head height 32 feet inside the bush!

    It was a tough reach to Andy... :)

    Thank you Alf, I do agree. :)

    Cheer Graham - the iridescence shows up only under the flash...

    Yes, this (like the vast majority of my finds) was in the little back garden. ;)

    Thought i'd compliment your female with a male,, i think anyway. Did't even realise what it was until i looked at the snaps and i left it uncropped to give an idea of size on this thistle.

    I found some of these in our garden a couple of years ago - they are so tiny I struggled to get a picture of one - well done on yours @Paul Iddon :)
