Diplacodes deminuta (Little Percher)

Carol managed to spot this diminutive solo female perching on the ground at lunch break from one of her game drives in Etosha National Park, Namibia. despite not fully knowing the controls of my borrowed lens, she managed to snag some good shots, so well done.

A male would be nice. 😉

[I was stuck in camp nursing an upset stomach.]

Id Notes

  • ♂ – thorax and abdomen of mature males are all black
  • ♂ – small patch of brown at base of hind-wing
