Top quality in every way, the detail so well recorded: I don't recall ever having seen a hoverfly quite like this.

Fit to burst! Yes, she looks ready to lay eggs, unless of course you are prone to telling lies and fabricating stories? in which case your nose may become longer tooGrin.
Beautiful macro, Brian.
