Beautiful colours. It's not until you get it up on screen you can see all their hairy little details - a brilliant capture! Smile

They look great when photographed by you, however when buzzing round my head, or landing on my food I'm not so fond of them!

Carol, words fail me.
I don't want to sound patronising in any way, but you have a skillset that needs to be written down or passed on in some way.
I have sat and studied these images for a full 5 minutes (a long time, on epz..!) and tried to work out how you get this detail...
... focus stacking? That's the closest I have seen, quality-wise, elsewhere. But, no, your images are 'alive'.
A book is needed - and you would fill it with aplomb - and it would be a best-seller... !
...and I thought words failed me..!

PS You are testing my resolve, again..!

A much underrated and often despised insect, but one which plays a crucial role, and one which makes for a great set of images Carol
