Green Long legged Fly “Dolichopodidae”

Met this metallic green shiny beauty this morning. And you know his size was approx 6mm (um about the thickness of a pencil).

Google for the name and got this –

Lygaeidae in my park

I was having some fresh morning air in the park next to my home in New Delhi, India. There he was sitting on a leaf making me awestruck and rushing me back to bring my camera (Canon 700d). Thanks to the lens that the picture has come out pretty good.
