Chrysis inaequalis

Postby Paul » 29 Jun 2017 18:53

Hi folks,
today I could notice a new arrival for my home-location.
I've seen Chrysis inaequalis in several other locations I visit during the season.
But... to get reasonable pictures till now I had to wait for the rare moments before the go to bed.
Normally they are very shy and, of course, very quick. Today, after several years observation, I could
see the first specimen in my local area. And, maybe because of the bad weather that was coming up,
the animal was unusual calm and cooperative. So I could thake these pictures and want to share them with you.

All the best Paul
