Jut a little picture to tell you all I'm still alive ! :-) Being rather busy, I can't promise I'll be back on TN on a regular basis, but I'll try to come and have a quick look from time to time. I miss seeing all the wonderful pictures from all over the world.

On the picture, you can see a hover fly (sorry, I can't be any more precise concerning the species). It was last year, at the beginning of winter. These yellow flowers were the last flowers still alive, and this hover fly here was the last I have seen last year before winter had come.

It is nothing special, but it is rather difficult to do nature photography while trailing a baby boy after me, so it's all I can do for now ! :-)

I hope you''l like it, though !

Hi Valérie,

Even looking at a scene which is nothing special by your taste, it's great to hear from you. I myself don't find the scene uninteresting and I quite like the mass of these yellow flowers! Main subject (the hoverfly) could be slightly sharper, such as some of the flowers... but hey Madame, we're glad you are alive, you (& your family) are well and you didn't forget us totally. Not your best photo ever, but not a bad one at all! We hope to hear from you more often, whenever it's possible.
Best regards to you & your family, László

PS: sorry, I depleted my points for today.

How's Denis doing, Val? Must have grown into a strapping young toddler.
What a pleasure to see your picture after such a long time and to know you are well!
Your picture of a Hoverfly on flowers sends waves of cheers to me. It is a very pleasant composition.
Keep returning here once in a while though we know how busy you must be.
With all the best wishes,

Bonjour Valérie

Hello Valerie.
Very nice picture of hoverfly on yellow flowers. You did so well that no sign of over exposure on the yellow petals. POV and DOF are great. Lovely composition.Best regards Siggi
