What a beautiful fly!
It really keeps up with the most popular insects like dragonflies or butterflies!

Hi Jorge,

you don't need to persuade me. Wink
I just put myself in "mainstream's" position. Smile

It is really beautiful! It has light blue balancers an the grey stripes on it's thorax appear like a pinstripe suit of a business man. It wears stylish yellow shoes and its wings look like fragile glass. Its abdomen owns all rainbow colors, but the colors are not too saturated. So it is far from being overdressed, cheap or kitschy.
Not to forget the beautiful "rest" of the fly. Wink

Greetings
Nele

Sometimes search bots cause heavy traffic, on occasion the site is being swapped by server requests, probably hackers trying to find an entry point to hack the server.
