Only the second time I have seen this one in our garden in the 2 years that we have been here.

I have 2 questions though please. I am guessing this is a female so could someone please confirm.

Also, as I am not really familiar with this one, I wondered why this one is considerably smaller than the other one I saw. It was barely visible it was so thin Laughing Could this be because its a newly emerged one? I know the other one looked like it was carrying eggs which would exlain it, but would like to know if they are this thin and small when newly emerged please.

Thanks.
Linda
