Flower & Hover Fly...

By Scottishlandscapes  
..well it may be a Wasp and maybe something else? The Crail flower extravaganza was on when I was there the other day for a visit.
Not the most inspiring of compositions, and then the Wasp flew in.
This particular display was outside the Ladies, I got a few funny looks.Blush

***Thanks Mavis, I knew it wasn't a Wasp, a Hover Fly it is.

Well lit and coloured this one Dougie.
And I do suppose in your press days waiting outside a ladies toilet was a no-no.
Today the togs will think it is just water off a ducks back I suppose !!

Nicely captured whatever it was. Won't be long now and all the flowers will be gone, so a nice memory......Sandy

It's a wee, angry-sounding black and yellow stripey thingy, Dougie.
Thoughtfully composed, blooms on a diagonal and controlled use of dof.

The hoverfly does add to the overall effect so much, Dougie.
Haven't been to Crail for yolks, such a pretty wee East Neuk village.
