Personal Hygiene.

Saw this Hover-fly early one morning on an Aster bud - appeared to be washing its face and feet for quite a while.

Thanks to anyone who supported my 'Natures Jewel' image - very much appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by.

Great POV to catch the action, detail and light spot on. "and they say flies are dirty things" they spend ages cleaning themselves don't they?
