Hello folks I've been such a good girl - instead of playing in the garden I've spent all day waxing and polishing the downstairs floors - rolling heavy rugs and heaving furniture - the floor looks lovely (I really should do it more often )
I think it's a Black & Yellow Longhorn Beetle http://www.uksafari.com/longhorn_black_and_yellow.htm
from what I can find out there are several types, one of which is also known as the Wasp Beetle because it looks so much like a wasp http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/species/wasp-beetle
I've found this really useful http://www.bbcshop.com/home+garden/alan-titchmarsh-how-to-garden-garden-design/invt/9781846073977?source=112_74&gclid=COSvnsmy7b8CFcbJtAodeDQAlg a lot of book for little money and some very helpful ideas.
I think someone else has too .... I can't remember who I lent it to
Those are very long legs, and I can't see a thorax
Isn't that absolutely lovely
We had our first one in the garden yesterday - now the season's started we'll see lots - we're very close to the River Yare and the UEA Broad which is well known for it's dragonflies
That is gorgeous - and so cheap - compared to a similar property over here - something like that would cost more than double that here ....

If that doesn't work let us know
They seem so eager to make others be peaceable that they're willing to wage war to do it
Perhaps some photographs would help?
