Exquisite Little Winged One



Who is this little fellow with the silver legs and green eyes?

He was on the back porch under a dim florescent light, no moonlight, and the temperature was a warm,  72F.  There had been a light rain during the day.  The photo, without flash, washed out his colors so much that I enhanced them to get closer to his own natural gorgeousness.  Not visible is that his legs appeared entirely silver and his wings are outlined in the same shimmering silver.  The antennae and eyes are green. The head abdomen and thorax are the same turquoise, with blue shadows, as the wings.

Exquisite Little Winged One.
