Hello Paul,
Welcome back!
A very fine macro of a small hoverfly that looks like it might be Sphaerophoria scripta. The technical quality is first class and as always, your use of flash is very skillful to produce a contrasting dark but day-time BG.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

I love the dark BG!it looks so artistic and the subject in itself is so sharp and well illuminated, Paul!
Very well done, my friend!
