Secret Hoverfly

By Samuel_Aron  
Hi everybody,
Took this on the same day that I went to my neighbors house but in my garden. It's a Secret Hoverfly which isn't in the ideal place for an insect portrait (on a wall) but I didn't want it to fly away.
Hope you like it.

Looks as though this has had a very large crop Sam as its showing a lot of noise at ISO 80. Still some good detail though and a greta attempt. Its a Housefly though not a Hover Wink
