Artist's Description

My close friend, the beautiful Bee Fly.
Totally harmless despite the fierce looking rigid proboscis, this tiny insect invited himself into my sun room, sat on my hand and graciously posed for over 100 photos! I carried him outside and we then parted company as he flew off into the distance, never to be seen again…
He’s a true fly, of the order Diptera, 10-12mm

I try to make the perfect image, knowing that I can’t and won’t. If I ever did achieve perfection, what would I have to strive for…..?

The best camera is the one you have with you.

I support Butterfly Conservation.

“Butterflies adorn the world and delight the eye”
John Ray (17th century naturalist)

It is not possible with mortal minds to search out the purposes of the gods.
Pindar

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Aristotle

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)
