[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I noticed there were some hover-flies buzzing around the bottom of my garden, I managed to get a few shots of them at rest, but I thought it would be more of a challenge to try and get on in flight. I didn’t have a lot of success, this is the best of the bunch. The flies kept surprisingly still in the air, giving me plenty of time to focus and frame, but the camera just kept on focussing on the background no matter what I tried. I’ll keep on trying, I enjoyed the challenge and want to get a better shot next time.
