It is about 3-4mm in diameter and what made me to spot it is when it was flying slowly among the tall grass blades and it looks like a tiny speck of yellow neon lights hovering .The pattern is in the color of bright yellow and lined in electric green and a base in black.The clear shell is noticeable around the skirting of the body.

Thank you my friend Asergio. I stopped taking chemotherapy and Isotope radiation for the last 6 months because of the side effects. Doing alternative treatments via herbal usage in Indonesia and its working real good.

It looked great that morning. It was flapping the wings in slow flight and that is when i noticed the bright yellow neon like lights in the air.glad that it settled down and i took a quick shot at it and then it flew further.Thank you and it is good to chat with you Leuba.

Morning Leuba. That is indeed lovely. I don't really know but the one i spotted had the pattern more like a brain and the yellow was very prominent with thin greenish lining around it.

Probably 3-4mm . I would not have spotted it if it wasn't flying and the flapping wings in yellow created the neon like effect.
