That’s a beautiful shot Gene, but I believe that is the other lady. Try American Lady.

well that's taught me something thanks. Not that I get to see these, but am always interested in the subtle differences that make up individuals in living creatures

Yes, thanks. It's amazing how such delicate insects can do that and not get blown off course, battered by the weather etc, yet alone eaten enroute
Didn't realise they held that record though :-)
