Rescued from a cat, hence the photograph. They usually move too fast.

What fabulous insects these are! Try loading the original of this photo to see how well Kate has captured the eyes. Seems to be a lot of these around Dorset this year - in spite of all the windy weather we've had recently.

Correct identification for the reasons you give. I agree with Bob a very clear photograph, especially of the head.
