Hi Joe. I have to say this is about as good as it gets in macro pictures. first the POV lets us see the whole of the body with fine detail and your sharp focusing. Your use of the flash has given a shine to the wings and bright colours. well taken TFS.

You make this hoverfly look so beautiful! A wonderful shot with marvelous colors and great detail. I love the pose on the leaf - the wings are spectacular. A lovely background with the blurred green.Best regards Siggi

Very fine closeup with good many details. tfs.
nice, you used the flash to good steed. It must have been a ring oder other macro flash. That way the glare on the wings was subdued.
Thijs (pentaxfriend) already told us (and I confirm it after consulting an ID book) that this fly is not a Marmalade hoverfly, but a male Helophilus pendulus, Striped hoverfly, ("Gemeine Sumpfschwebfliege" in German). Since TN mounts can be traced with Google it is useful to have the right keywords attached to them. I hope you don't mind this little carping of mine :-) I know that your are'nt an entomologist (and mistakes happen to entomologists like me as well).
