Hover fly has settled on this wild flower and is preening itself. A sat still for a good few seconds. The sun was out and you can see the shadow of the wings on the flower petal

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.

  • Thanks, Vadim. The fly was very co-operative in that it stayed put for quite a few seconds

    Great shot. Your timing was impeccable to get such a well composed image of a creature that can be so frustrating by zooming off just as you are about to shoot. Cheers.P.

  • Thanks very much. I actually got another where the fly is preening, so it’s slightly different to this in that it has its back legs together. Might be too similar to enter in to the same groups right now, though
