Chucking it down here too Alan, how on earth do you manage to get such accurate focussing using such a very shallow DOF?
A quite superb result, did you anaesthetise him LOL?

I don't know,taking advantage of a poor wet Hover Fly Alan Wink Still you have him real close with plenty of detail & the water drops add so much to this composition.Good colour & dof.

I almost feel sorry for the little hoverfly being drenched like that, Alan, but it does make a great image.
