Its a good shot Alistair. I agree with Frank that its seems a little dull, - and for me thats also partly due to the white balance being off a little which Ive changed in my mod in addition to brightening.
I applied a little noise reduction and sharpening also.
Taking your shots in RAW gives you the ability to change white balance in post processing if it doesnt look right.
A good effort with an 18-200 - a lens not meant to do this kind of thing - even though it says macro in it's name. Needs a little more contrast and a touch more sharpening.
Did you use support - a tripod or monopod. You need to, because I assume you were at 200mm - actually 320mm.
By the way, that's not a Hoverfly - looks like a common house fly or dung fly, but there are hundreds of types.
Guys, thanks for all your comments and mods. I'm still new to proper photography so all your advice is appreciated.
