Hover Fly

Taken yesterday just after my bumble bee shot during my insect shooting session. I think the vivid colours make this shot.

Macro Mode / ISO200 / F8 / 1/500sec.

Worked up well Jon, did you use NeatImage? You got the focus spot on and good DOF. I can see I am going to have some competition Smile

George, Eoin, Alan, thanks for the comments.

Brian, I haven't had a chance to use neat image yet - this was just tidied up using PSP7 - think I've finally found the optimal settings for this type of shot!
