Hi David, welcome to TN. NIce first post, good colours and some nice details. The focus is a little soft on the fly, F2.8 is too shallow for this kind of picture, I don't know what camera you have but you need something like F8.
On TN an accompanying note is required, this can be about how you took the shot, technical details, ID of the subject, habitat, behaviour - anything really but you'll get more attention that way.
The regulars are a good bunch and I have learned lots so I hope to see more of your work.
The ID of your Hoverfly is Episyrphus balteatus if you are interested.

Welcome to TN David. I agree with Pauls comments, but I hope that we will see lots more of each others work in future. A fix is to up the ISO to something like 400 and the F/Stop to 8 (at 2.8 the DOF is smaller than the fly)as Paul mentioned.
Thanks for posting this and hope to see lots more of your work
