Hi all,
Today i got a mail from Ersin! to pep me up and i went to "De Hortus" with a goal in mind to shoot some non-butterfly subjects! ( I think U ppl are tired of my butterfly shots).
It was a sunny day and i saw this fellow which looks like a hover fly sitting on a leaf (he was about 2 cms long) took some shots, handheld and got some decent pictures.Hope you ppl will like it.
This picture is for you Ersin!

Hi Goutham,
