Great Shot P....I had the most beautiful torquoised coloured flying insect in the garden today - by the time I came back with camera to get a pic it was gone.

Ah,,Scottish they are looking for the "small blue " up there in your part of the world. It is not usually a garden butterfly ...but you have that field behind your house? it is the smallest of the UK butterflies.

Just googled P....it wasn't this butterfly and certainly not something as beautiful as this. I'm going to spend a wee while on google and see if I can at least try identify. It's wings were totaly transparent and wasn't the right shape to be a dragonfly!
