I was sat on the doorstep and spotted a hover fly.

I've had to do quite a bit to this one, it was very noisy!

Nice try but a bit too close for the cam, try rocking to and fro. on a man setting, I assure you the cam will shoot better on manual, to get a sharp shot when focusing, it is not easy either...Your eyes are better than the camera, so snap when it is sharp. Thanks Chen
