During lunch break walk at work, I have encountered this little fellow. He flew by and sat on the macadam right next to me – a very conspicuous bright green jewel on the grey dull road. It was really tiny – about the size of a thumbnail. And of course I did not have my camera and macro lenses on me, so you have to do with this rather poor pictures made with my phone.

What a pretty creature! Your photos are just fine, don’t apologize.
A jewel creature.
Beautiful colours! Easy to see how it caught the eye.
Those are lovely photos.
It looks a bit like polished Jade and I love the hairy legs that likely pick up tons of pollen.
Vibrant, but look at these mandibles!
