This little chap goes by the name of Rhogogaster viridis, or green sawfly to his friends.

He came to join me for lunch, failed to appreciate the sticky qualities of mayonnaise, lost his footing, fell backwards into the lettuce but finally managed to right himself. After that he spent several minutes furiously flapping his wings and spraying mayo everywhere. Then he flew off with a note to himself to keep away from plates of lettuce and stick to buttercups.

    He looks pristine Pansy........I take it the photo was before the unscheduled Mayo dip ?  Actually, you could have just eaten him couldn't you ?  Insect "takeaways" are the next McDonalds I believe...........got to be healthier anyway image

    Are the stripes on his legs painted with mayo?

    He's very handsome. I don't think I've seen one of those

    Yes, the photo was taken before his adventure. His eyes were the most stunning electric blue.  

    He looks enormous but he was only about a centimetre long.image
