Fly on a Dandelion

By barrywebb  
Taken in my garden recently. It was a fairly cold morning, which means the insects are less active until they warm up. I took about 20 shots making sure I got the foreground seeds in focus as well as the fly. Again I focus stacked the shots to get the final image.
Thanks for all the V's, C's and awards for the 'fly in the kitchen', all very much appreciated. (sorry Pamela but there's no way I would have flattened the little blighter after taking my shots!) I thought he was beautiful Smile
