Description:

There are a lot of these around at the moment. The first ones I saw were in my garden but since then I've seen similar in several other places.
Based on previous postings, this looks like an Adela sp. Are the antenna and legs really as blue as they look?

I'm so glad,

they're such beautiful creatures. They aren't in my garden any more but they're still around the area, not in such great numbers though.
