[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A small, buzzing, smallish insect that hovers a lot, feeding or looking for food, before it darts off somewhere else. The best of many shots in the few moments before it flew off. I tried some at a faster shutter speed to try and freeze the wings, but it moved too much to be able to focus.
