A fabulous shot ! They only appear in our garden very briefly once a year. After many attempts I have yet to get a satisfactory photograph.

Well captured. I managed to see one of these for the first time and that was in Majorca. They dart in and out and then disappear for a while but i managed to get a few half decent shots but not as good as this one...Liked
