Found on my arugula leaves in my backyard garden.
I saw two of these flirting with each other high in the trees along 16th Avenue in San Francisco.
They were both extremely quick and hard to stay up with.
One was kind enough to fly down and allow me to get a few cell phone snapshots.
Drinking from radish flowers.
