Return of the Hover Fly

By ian_w
Took this in my home town. I'm actually really happy with the way I've managed to capture this.

Hope you like! Only modification is unsharp mask.

The DOF is good as all the attention is on the main subject.

Cracking image and detail of the fly and surrounding area.I may have been tempted to lose most of the left hand side and make the image square or upright.

Amazing, I never seem to be able to capture an insect, they move way too quickly for me to focus and press the button at the right time! Smile

Many thanks all. I'm really glad everyone liked. Also, my first that has achieved so many comments and ratings Smile

Once again, thanks all. Let's hope I can pull another out of the hat that ends up just as good if not better.
