While I was trying to photograph this plant a hoverfly came in for a visit. It was pretty difficult getting sorted quickly, but I eventually managed to de-select shutter delay and self timer and got a few shots before it wizzed off...

You'll notice it's carrying a piece of pollen Smile

Off to bed now... back to work tomorrow Sad

Cheers, Goggz

a most excellent capture, and the little bit of pollen he is carrying is just superb, wish I could vote for this twice!

Thanks folks!

It's a crop of a bigger shot, but not rotated, so the fly is perfectly placed on short finals Smile

Super shot! Love these colours against that bright red - and you even managed to get that hoverfly sharp!
Seems you are discovering the art side of yourself... Smile
