Small (a bit less than 1 cm I would say), fast-moving - rushing about on outhouse roof. Iridescent colouring with "face" more yellowish on lower part, greenish-blue above. Main impression of head and thorax colour is peacock-blue. Startling pink to red abdomen but a flash of yellow colour viewed from behind when it (briefly) took off. Beautiful creature!
