[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the many varieties which are grouped as "hoverflies", this one was cooperative enough to stay in place whilst I got to within a few inches of him (or her).

Taken with a 21mm extension tube behind the 50mm lens and with aperture set at f11 to try to achieve reasonable depth of field. Handheld, and no I didn't put superglue on the leaf. No bugs were harmed during the taking of this picture.

Hi Norman,

This is a great shot. Details are sharp and colors are superb. Maybe the crop is a little too tight. POV is good. Well done & TFS!

Regards,
Pieter

Hello Norman

Awesome macro. Wonderful markings with lovely colours. Tack sharp with clear details. Good contrast against the green leaf. Well done. Thanks.

Hello Norman, nice shot of Helophilus pendulus. The colours are good and it's a fine looking specimen. The crop is a little too tight for my liking and I think it could be a smidge sharper but apart from that it's a fine shot. Well done.

Hi Norman,
This also a very nice.
