A brief spell of sunshine brought the hoverflies out of hiding, to enjoy the carpets of oxalis pes caprae that are covering the olive groves and meadows now.

Lovely shots Carol, a brief spell of sunshine would not go amiss here as well. I think that hoverflies are a beautiful little creature, such vibrant colours.

Two incredibly beautiful images, the glistening petals of the tubular formed bloom is beautiful, almost silk like it its appearance.
