About to land

By Nettles  
Still on Hover flies, I managed to catch this one as it was about to land on this tiny flower.
If you have the time DO PLEASE VIEW LARGE to be able to see the Hover fly properly.

Thanks for stopping by to look and hope you have a nice day.

You did extremely well here Annette such a tricky subject to catch in flight - they like those Biden flowers don't they.
Great fun to see the hoverfly caught in full flight. It also makes a great photo. JNC

Excellent flight shot Annette and the detail is superb; think this might be the first one of these I've seen that's very deliberate and where the focus isn't on the flower making you feel the hoverfly was a lucky coincidence Wink
