I was expecting it to be a parasitic wasp, but's it's a hoverfly, how unusual?.......Good capture all the same, well done.

Wow, a stunning macro shot. Caused me to look through your portfolio, which contains more wonderful macro work, difficult to believe you say your a "beginner" If your skills as a Doctor are as good as your skills as a photographer then your patients are very lucky and are in very good hands. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
