Harebell - Campanula rotundifolia

By Mendipman  
I had been trying to get a decent shot of a Harebell for some time, nearly all the one's I saw were in small clumps and I could never get a composition I liked, until I spotted this one on its own on an old anthill in a small hollow and so spent over half an hour trying different positions to find the best composition.

Towards the end and in a single frame only, this hoverfly popped in and out. Only briefly saw it on the live view and didn't really know until I downloaded the file whether it was any good. This is it and with absolutely no cropping required.

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Marbled White and especially to David (cymru2019), Rich (richmowil), Yogendra and Alan (Alan_Baseley) for your User Awards, all so very much appreciated.
