Description:

These can be coaxed to settle on your hand. They love Gooseberry flowers and fly best in the morning. Plant the bush in a location where it gets only afternoon sun and hold your hand so that it faces the sun. I did this by mistake. After i had gone and got the camera one came over and settled on my hand and posed for a great photo. This time it only dabbed down and took off again.
