[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Which is harder to shoot, a flying bird or a flying hover fly? You can only answer this question if you'd try both. At first I thought it's impossible to do this but when I mastered the skill, I've been shooting this insect from all angles while flying. It's fun and very challenging.

Hola Rey.Has congelado la imagen con mucha tecnica.El encuadre y el instante,excepcionales.Felicidades.Saludos.

You've managed to capture this with good composition and an interesting background.
Keep practising, you may need to choose a faster shutter speed on your camera.

glad to see someone else try... (one and other)

Its is quite difficult but not that difficult if you have plenty of time on your hands and a good spot of sunshine to sit down in...
