Hoverfly on a yellow Gazania in the garden last summer.
Nikon D5100 70-300mm sigma lens . 1/500s F5.4 ISO 100.
Hampshire UK.

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Amazing work! I just love the way the hoverfly is framed by out of focus petals.
