Spent the day yesterday round some local pools with wonderful flowers and insect life. I was really pleased with this shot of a hoverfly on a thistle, which was taken with my 50mm prime and then cropped. I've cropped and sharpened before adding the border in elements.

Thanks for looking

Thanks Carol, was really pleased with the result myself. One of those rare ones where I was happy with it the moment I pressed the shutter (wish that happened more often!).
