I agree with you about her wings.. they're gorgeous. Wonderful detail here, very well captured and a delight to view!!

Thank you Heather. I am glad you like it too.

Taken on the hand rail of my patio. It is the first time that I see that beauty. Wings are almost a piece of art. I look the female lay some eggs for a few minutes. I did a few macro shots of the head and thorax but focus was quite bad. (see next picture )
