The hovers are about in quite large numbers now, I love trying to capture this tiny little fella, sometimes known as the marmalade hoverfly.

Three of your very best Carol, each one as sharp as a tack with magnificent colour. Whilst at the same time your standard of presentation is unsurpassed.

These are all superb Carol. The detail is awesome and so is the colour. A stunning set.

Beauty of the hover fly very well captured in V1 & V2, Carol. No wonder your Pana could not capture the fast beat of the fly's wings(slow shutter?), net result: a wingless fella. - Raja

Stunning images Carol. I love the colours and patterns on hoverflies, beautiful little beasties and so difficult to capture well.

Three great shots. I love V3, it is very amusing. How you get such wonderful shots I will never, alas, understand. You are a marvel with your little Panasonic and would be, and probably are, the envy of many would be NG photographers.
