Hi all, here's another Hoverfly image similar to the one posted previously. Looks like I wasn't careful enough to choose the best one when I looked through my folder as this looks much better to me, but then again I'm no expert Wink
The detail is a little better and I feel the noise doesn't seem to be quite so apparent, we shall see Tongue
PS:
Previous image now hidden as it's not to the quality I try to achieve and apologies to those who voted and commented on it.

Have to agree with you, Geoff, this one is much better than the previous, and the previous was pretty good, anyway Smile Carol

I think you should remove the link to ' Larger Than Life 1' image Geoff seeing as you have deleted it and no comparison can be made.
I don't like seeing that after I had taken the time to comment on it.!!!!
As for this version - better than previous but very ordinary.

Excellent detailed shot with the light behind him helping to accentuate the hair detail and body parts, I think this is a drone fly very much like a hover fly in lots of respects, if I had time I would look it up for you, but if you go on line to Safari Garden they have photo's of most insects in sections and named, hope that's a help,regards Leon, nice one good luck,GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
