Hover fly coming in to take advantage of the nectar.

Taken whilst out walking the dogs. Not the best companions when trying to do some close up photography.

Thanks all for your comments.

mok27rc1, this shot was handheld with a twin tube flash on the end of the lens.

Steve5452 , could well be a bee as I am not an expert on bugsWink
