    Default A Hover I've never seen before.

    ..at least I suspect it's a Hoverfly. This big fat Pie eater came barging its way in onto the goodies and stuck around for a few hours.

    I thought initially it was a bee but when it began to hover in the one spot, I knew it wasn't.
    As usual, the yellow bar to view properly.

    1/250th @ F8, ISO 200 -1.67ev natural light



    1/320 @ F4.5, ISO 100 -2.00ev natural light



    1/200th @ F10, ISO 200 -1.00ev natural light



    1/320 @ F11, ISO 200 -2.00ev natural light



    And finally, here it is in flight.

    1/320th @ F4, ISO 100 -2.00ev natural light




    ...and a crop of the above image.

    Some quality amazing shots there, the wings are fantastic but the 3rd pic is my fav. Good work. Let's hope the next comp isn't insects?

    Cheers guys

    On a side note, I've been advised it's probably a DRONE-FLY or MYATHROPA FLORAE
