|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Winged insects come out in spring here in north India after long winter months and can be spotted hovering over spring flowers like this Eristalinus Hover Fly I captured in my school garden 2 days ago.|
Eristalinus is a genus of hoverfly. Most species have very distinctive eye marking in the form of spots or banding, though these features may fade on some preserved specimens. Most are stout flies, and are nimble flyers, even compared to other hoverfly species.

Pin sharp focus on this fine looking hoverfly specimen. The detail is fantastic over it's entire body with plenty of DOF. I like it's unique banded eye markings. I will have to pay more attention to future hoverfly species since you pointed out their spotted or banded patterns. Beautiful natural colors and nicely composed in a diagonal pose.
