Three fabulous shots Carol, v2 is amazing, I find him a little un- nerving in this image, maybe it's those huge black eyes! Beautiful detail as ever.

What a great insect Carol! I went to Hyde Park over the weekend, very hot full of people but I managed to get a few bug shots! Rest of the time spend with my feet in the Serpentine lake as it was too hot to do anything else! Grin
The details in V2 are amazing! Nice one! GrinGrin

Not surprised to see the clicks bee flying in for this super set Carol. V2 has the edge. V1 is the best of the fly but the scabious is a tad burnt out in the harsh light
