A beautiful macro Sylvia, the detail and clarity is immaculate and I like the pollen sack. You are right about this year being disasterous for insects, the numbers of bees, hoverflies and butterflies visiting my garden has been markedly down on recent years and there are not the numbers around on local sites like prestbury hill either.
