Feeding frenzy

By Rachel99
I was walking down the garden on the way to my office this morning and I noticed that my lone surviving poppy after the torrential rain of last night was attracting an amazing number of hoverflies. As well as the six that I managed to catch, there were two or three buzzing around waiting for a space to land.
Thanks for all clicks and comments for my waterlily.

Beautiful macro shot. Superb depth of field and stunning detail. A lovely well composed shot with great lighting. Busy little bees aren't they?
