I've seen very few of these this year and this is the only one I've managed to get a shot of.

A fine capture, Alan, I've spotted a few, but always on the wing. Unfortunately I don't have any buddleia in the garden to attract them. Carol

Very nice Alan. I have just planted a buddleia so perhaps we'll see some next year. Grin
