Ah, a female...

Thanks for that, Chris - much more plausible, but I couldn't reconcile the half-black antennae with the pictures of males that I saw.

Colours

Hi Joe, it's funny how some colours do not always reproduce that well on digital cameras. You say it was much more golden than in the image, I find that blues are the hardest to faithfully reproduce. Regards Chris.
