[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I tried to find a butterfly near my home, but they didn't want to show themselves at the day.
While looking I saw this bug, I think that it belongs to the Syrphinae family (you are invited to correct me), it hoovered there in the field, so I tried to catch him in flight, it wasn't an easy task at all, but I managed to catch few descent frames.
I hope that you will enjoy looking.

Hi David,
Wow, great photo. Very clear of the eyes. I think the color of the fly and BG match perfectly. Not to mention a very good timing.
Best regards,

perfect shot during fly, excellent details, interesting bug.


Great capture. Excellent details.

Wow!!! This is awesome!
Very good flying shot of this lovely Hoverfly!
The eyes are stunning!
Excellent focusing and a great DOF.
Lovely lighting.
Brilliant BG.

Very good shot from a very skilled photographer.

Well done!

dang, not often I see someone capturing a bug in mid flight, you must have a really fast lens. Great focus and detail

Terrific eyes Elroyie!
Enjoyed the visit :)
