This was one of a group of small flying insects with extremely long antennae and a yellow stripe across the wing. They were bouncing up and down above a clump of ferns, then occasionally all would land on the ferns.
Apologies for low res of shot as I had forgotten my "proper" camera and had to resort to my daughter's iphone.
