Mating Hoverflies

By barrywebb  
This shot was taken half an hour later from the same spot as yesterdays Wasp shot. This pair of mating Hoverflies hung around just long enough for me to fire off a burst of about ten shots. They did move a bit whilst doing their business but four of those shots were good enough for me to create this focus stacked final result.
Much appreciation an thanks to all who have given UA's for my Digger Wasp and Snail Killing Fly images, plus a special thanks to Mike for the GEA on the Snail Killing Fly.
