Hover Fly.

By Mollycat
The darn thing went from bloom to bloom. Eventually it did land, but decided to hide.

My thanks for looking in yesterday. Appreciated.

It was in flight but you still got it in focus. Combine that with an excellent composition, and it has to be an award.

They hover at great speed but you caught it bang to rights Pater.

I like the way the blooms are hiding their faces from the hoverfly, Peter.
These insects are not the easiest to capture, always daring off the minute you achieve a focus.

Two great images Peter. The lead image is a beautiful flower composition as well as showing the hover fly in flight so well.

Well, at least it got you two good close-ups, Peter, and well done catching in flight in the lead image 🐝Not like the housefly wanting to share my Abbot whilst uptown lunching in Wetherspoons earlier today! 😬

Excellent dof on the hover fly, Peter. And on a windy day, the flowers wont stay still either.

I noticed they were back in my garden in the last. 7 -10 days when the weather was at its warmest. I love the sound they make when there are large groups of them about. Nice clear capture of him Peter.
cheers walt
