Hover Fly by Barrie Woodward

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Not something I’ve ever really noticed before until capturing one by accident on a cornflower a couple of years ago. The hover or flower fly suit the yellow background more though, despite it being the dreaded and unwelcome ragwort.
Bolton, Lancashire North West UK

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.
