Would you believe it - Another Hover fly!

I really like this shot, but I wasn't going to post it... The bottom right corner has a blurred/out of focus area and I feel it is a little distracting?

A Photoshop guru would have amended this I am sure - If you are out there, maybe you can tell if its easy to amend this?

I figure its better to upload and share, so I hope you like it anyway, hopefully I can pick up these skills to improve.

Thanks for looking.

Nevermind the bottom-right corner John. It's a brilliant shot that is pin sharp and with a nice shallow depth of field.

Superb detail and dof, well captured. I'm not too distracted by the corner but if you wanted to give it a try, the spot healing brush is quite useful and easy to use, I've used it a few times to touch up similar backgrounds.
