Permission to Land??!

I pestered this Hover Fly for about 20 minuits until i finally caught him mid flight coming into land on an everlasting daisy. Hoverflies are not related to bee's, instead they belong to the same group as blowflies (Diptera).

Brilliant shot! It's really hard to get one of those... Great job!

PS: You need to clean your sensor. There are several dust bunnies visible in the photo ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

I'm always trying to explain to people that a hover fly is not a bee :-) we have a ton of them around my area.

Nicely done! Great clarity and DOF.

So that's what those are.

Can you tell me if this shot is of the same kind of fly?: http://www.capturethisphotography.com/2007/07/tiny.html

This is beautiful. So excellent how you stopped his motion. So crisp.
