[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a busy month for schools in our country due to examinations. I somehow managed to take a few minutes off this morning to capture the school garden for the record since the flowers are now in full bloom.
During the shoot, I came across a number of winged insects having a good time on the flowers. They were mostly Bees and Hoverflies. I shot quite a few of them today and I am posting one of them today. It is a Hoverfly which I cannot identify individually.
Thanks for looking.

A colourful well-composed image Ram.
The Hoverfly is a type of Drone-fly of the Eristalis genus.
I like the POV that shows its features with excellent sharpness and colours against the contrasting BG of the flowers.
Nice to view!
I hope you get some time to rest in this intense period of school activity,
Kind regards,

Ciao Ram, lovely hoverfly on a splendid flower, fantastic colors, excellent sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Ram
it's good that you had a few minutes for taken photos in the school garden, the result is very beautiful with vivid color tones, the hoverfly is very sharp and superbly presented, TFS
Have a good night

Nice composition with gr8 colours and depth. Thanks for the pic. regards.

Hallo Ram
What a warm and inviting image is this. I like it very much, not just because of your beautiful subject or the setting, or the lovely purple flowers that serves both as a backdrop or frame, but mostly because of the pleasant and natural sunlight that is seen so beautifully in this wonderful 'picture'. It has such a joyful feeling that surrounds it. It reminds me of all the laughter and joy one experience at the merry-go-round. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Ram,
This is not beautiful. This is FABULOUS! Will you please excuse me for half an hour or so to just view this miracle. ... Ok I am back...colours, composition, definition and, most of all, if one can single anything out, a splendidly beautiful atmosphere. What a joy to view. Very very well done.
