Shiny Syphidae Secretly Smelling the Sweet Summer Scent

By NDODS    
Firstly before I begin to describe this image, I would like to say a BIG thank you for all you're caring and kind words regarding my current well-being. Over the last few weeks I have not been mu usual chirpy get up and go self. The Doctors then re-arranged my medication here and there. Although I feel tired most of the time, at least I am starting to make some improvement. Today I am of to my visit my Cognitive and Behavioural Therapist in Tunbridge Wells, who will in turn get me on the bench and begin his physic analysis, and when all is done he will rubber stamp me, and send me to another specialist. Anyway enough of me gripping on... Todays image was captured during a break in the weather whilst in respite last week at the Leonard Cheshire Trust.

Hope you all have a great day, highest regards Nathan

You've done well capturing this one Nathan.....Well done!

Keep you pecker up mate, I'm still seeing the head shrinks after 19 years and they still haven't sorted me out, but I don't think they ever will. That's the trouble with folk whose had near death experiences, folk don't see the damage on the inside!

Super illiteration Nathan and a beautiful image to boot! The detail in that little fly is wonderful - especially those fine wings.

One thing no one can accuse you of is griping Nathan. Glad to hear things are starting to improve for you.
A very beautiful capture here. Love the softness around the edges of the flower against the sharpness of the insect. Beautiful colour too.
Nicely detailed & presented... Uplifting
