Felt this needed a comment.
I think this is a cracking image - if I could - I would give myself an Award.Grin

Glorious light and rich, warm tones, Brian. Detail and pose of the Hover-fly are perfect, with a great title to match. Fabulous background colours and composed to perfection. Surprised this hasn't received higher awards, or indeed other awards, but at least mine is available Wink

It is a real beauty Brian - and I'm glad you're pleased with it - and not surprised as it's stunning. Smile
