Found this one in the garden over the weekend, I guess she must have been one of the last to emerge, because whilst it's late in the season she was in absolutely pristine condition. Mind you having said all this I have in the seen the species on the wing as late as early December before and we have had a really strange summer.
Thanks for all the recent kind comments and good wishes concerning my recent fall, the legs still very swollen and bruised, but it's slowly getting better.
Hope you enjoy this image, best regards to everyone.......Ade
