Flensburg, in my garden, 14th June2018, 7am. +/- 10mm long.

It was very active and difficult to photograph - almost continually in motion - running and jumping on top of Hokaido leaves, occasionally stopping to feed or drink. I wonder if the X-shaped cut in the leaf in the third image was made by it.

It had long legs and pale green-to-blue eyes with a metallic lustre.

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Sciapus

The ornamented fore tarsi may allow species ID.

Thank You John.
I'll look at the tarsi next time I see one of these. Not many insects around now, though, because northern Germany is experiencing a serious drought.
