Just to be difficult I prefer the capture on V2 but prefer the composition and cropping on V1.

The insect body is reflecting just a weeeny bit too much light in places of V1 while V2 is just perfect. However the composition and placement in V1 is better than V2

Just my humble opinion.

Your shot makes me realise that hoverflies aren't so plain after all but have a beauty of their own.
