Description:

slow flying, upright, brilliant vibrant red, dangly legs at rear looked more like antennae, very slimline / delicate, hint of blue at extremities, skilfully avoiding spider webs amongst bracken, approx 4-5 cm long. we thought it looked most like a forest pixie! apologies for poor photo - camera focussed on bracken rather than insect.
