..well it may be a Wasp and maybe something else? The Crail flower extravaganza was on when I was there the other day for a visit.
Not the most inspiring of compositions, and then the Wasp flew in.
This particular display was outside the Ladies, I got a few funny looks.Blush

***Thanks Mavis, I knew it wasn't a Wasp, a Hover Fly it is.

Well lit and coloured this one Dougie.
And I do suppose in your press days waiting outside a ladies toilet was a no-no.
Today the togs will think it is just water off a ducks back I suppose !!

A very well observed, composed, exposed, captured, processed and presented image Dougie.

Have you gone off it man...floowers...whatever next. and next to the ladies loo at that...you'll be getting yourself locked up.Not surprisingly it is a good pic with good composition and a fly for a bonus.

Nicely captured whatever it was. Won't be long now and all the flowers will be gone, so a nice memory......Sandy

It's a wee, angry-sounding black and yellow stripey thingy, Dougie.
Thoughtfully composed, blooms on a diagonal and controlled use of dof.

The hoverfly does add to the overall effect so much, Dougie.
Haven't been to Crail for yolks, such a pretty wee East Neuk village.
