Hoverfly

By Assyrian
This was taken in Dunskey Gardens in South West Scotland.

The sun was out and the place was alive with various hover flies and bees.

This pic IS the right way round!

Great shot. Like the dynamic compositional arrangement...like the subtle greens (top right) which are nicely echoed in the hoverfly's face!

'nother crackin' macro!

Sweet.

Dynamic nuthin! The fly was stuck sideways on the plant - just a pic of what was there!

Just love the brilliant yellows in this one. Oh, yeah, and the bug is pretty cool,too, even if it does look like Bono with his shades on!

Didn't U2 have a single called the fly?

Dynamic or not, really like this one!
