    Look what landed on my door step today

    This lovely looking thing landed on my door step today when I was just coming home. It was huge! About the size of my hand. It's my first one I have ever saw and it looked class when flying, what a pretty looking thing .

    Aye very pretty but it woulda ended up on the wrong side of my size 10 shoes!! Something like that flew out of a container that came back from Bosnia in my work but it had a huge needle like tale hanging at the end of it. Very similair colours also.

    A dragonfly?

    I think it is a Dragonfly, looked nicer in flight, it could have picked me up and carried me away lol

    My father in law got a wood wasp in a container at his work once. It came from China or something and it was massive. He put it in a bottle.... If it was me, it would have been early for an appointment with the sole of my shoe. I have flying insects. Fly's aint so bad but anything else is just horrible.
