Description:

Flew through my open train cab window straight into my face just as I was departing Cononley Rail station (near Skipton) To say I was 'surprised' is an understatement and I recognised what it was! The irony is I've been keeping my eyes out for one of these magnificent insects for years and never seen one. I think it's safe to say it found me!

Resisting the temptation -

to make jokes about trains so slow a sawfly can overtake them!
Seriously, what a great "find".
