    Quote:Tried to photograph them a few times, but could not get close enough and they are so fidgety. Excellent image!

    Vivia, I've found that these birds get less nervous if you are behind glass. In fact a car makes a very effective hide.

    Simmo, patience is the watchword. I found this little chap on the lounge window.

    I knew from my childhood experiences that these flies would sit without moving for ages, so I very carefully slipped a piece of photographic paper underneath it and carefully and quietly carried it into the Annexe.

    Once in there it did fly around, but I let it settle while I set up the camera on a focusing rail. I managed to get the fly back on the photo-paper, where it happily sat while I took all the shots I needed. Once I had the shots in the bag I shushed the fly out the door. Simples.
