Lovely
Lovely photos! That almost seems like an impossible blue, doesn't it? Gorgeous.

Outstanding.
Finally, an image that leaves no confusion whatsoever between Chlorion and Chalybion! (Applause). Fantastic.

 
Can I ask a stupid question?
Umm...Stupid Question Person here.. why does it leave "no confusion?" What features exactly are you looking at? (I'm in the throes of sorting out the Organ-pipe, the Blue Mud-Dauber and the Steel-blue Cricket hunter, and the Great Black Wasp. That last one is easiest, I think, but I believe I've got all four of these species in my garden. SOOoooo confusing!!!

Thanks again!

 
thanks
just decided that there were too few Chlorion pictures... and well, i had some fair shots, the rest is history.
