We did a bit of spring-cleaning(!) in the conservatory today, and unearthed this nice damsel (overleaf) fly behind a curtain. It wasn’t until I started trying to photograph it that I realised it was dead …

 

However, this did give me the opportunity of pulling off most of the bits of old cobweb and posing it rather fetchingly on a leaf out in the garden, especially as its springs were outspread in this kind of rigor mortis pose. Assuming the coloration is natural, and not some kind of faded artefact of its demise, this is a species I have never IDd before, one of the emerald damsels.
