What an absolutely stunning macro capture, Brian. Terrific clarity and razor sharp. The blue of the Cornflower is absolutely divine against the contrast of the clean acidic green bg tones. The Hoverfly detail, colours, textures and wing translucency are pure perfection.

Exquisite image Brian. Colour and focus are out of this world !! I am afraid that I do not have an award at the moment ( not paid up !!!) or you would have another to add to the long list.
