November Hover-fly.

By bricurtis
Spotted this Hover on a tatty/dying Japanese anemone flower when I went out to top up the bird feeders this morning.
Not much pollen to be had on it.....never seen a Hover this late in the year before. !!!

Thanks for the GEA and UA's on previous - PM's sent.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm surprised at how many insects are still around, too.
Lovely sharp hover, Brian, with nice definition on the wing veins.
Nicely balanced macro Brian. Not too many of those about now.

Yes, they are still around here too, although as you say not much pollen to be had. A lovely crisp shot, especially when viewed large.
