[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Raiding the archives from last summer again, and found this shot of a hoverfly. What can I say about hoverflies that hasn't already been said - the only question is the species, which I'm not sure about.

Cropped, sharpened and run through NeatImage to smooth out the background.

ISO 200

Thanks for stopping by.

Excellent details and sharpness, great composition and great colours. Great work! Well done, Vicky. Thank you for posting.

Hi Vicky,
this hoverfly is so nice and sunny, brings me into good mood, I dream of spring and summer - but when I look outside we have 40 cm snow since yesterday evening, brrrrrr.
So thanks for sharing
