Still not a lot of choice of subjects to photograph, as it has turned noticeably cooler again, so another hoverfly from a week or so back.

Good morning Carol!
You have turned what could have been an ordinary hover fly on a flower into an interesting and creative image full of marvelous details! Grin
The contrast between the dark shining hover fly and that lovely yellow makes it very appealing as a compo!

Absolutely what Chinga says, a really beautiful set of images. I still find it difficult to understand how you get such pin-sharp images with such depth. Marvellous.

I too cannot comprehend how you get so close and take such amazing images - the minute I try to step a tad closer they beggars fly off!!
Cracking images - so full of detail. Smile

As the others gave said above, you get amazing close ups and fantastic detail and sharpness that I couldn't get with my camera, I think you must speak insect right enough, either that or you have a bottle of what Alice in Wonderland had to make her tiny, so that you can jump up onto the flower beside the insects. Fab set of images.
