Pollen Gatherer

By teocali
A tiny Hoverfly (I don't know which sort so an ID would be great), emerging covered in pollen from a portulaca flower. V2 shows the same insect gathering pollen from the centre of the flower and V3 is the original image of V2 to show the scale. The flower is about 2.5cms across.
Settings: F/5.6 1/125sec -1EV ISO100 AV@45mm handheld Best viewed large if you have a moment

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last Spotted Flycatcher upload with a special thank you to Graham (Graham_P) for his User award - very much appreciated Smile

Cracking captures Sylvia, V2 has to be my favourite for the detail and especially more dof
