I have no idea what kind of fly this is. I'm curious though so any help is appreciated.

Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink and sing
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength and breath;
And the want
of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die.

-- William Blake

Hello Angy!
A nice macro of this fly (all I know is that it's a species of hoverfly!) :)
Great composition and nice colours.

Well done,

Joe

It might not be a fly??! I am not sure but it looks like something else. I see Joey suggested hoverfly...oh yes ...thanks a lot for posting. You have given me hope:-) Superior use of depth of field..you have obviously not had teh camera in the closet as Jim suggested...:-)

Hi Angelina.
Thanks for nice comments and warm greetings. I also am glad to hear you and watch your pictures. Pictured subject is very attractive. Diagonal created by yellow flowers and cute hoverfly on one of them is fine as well as pleasant colours and sunlight. DOF is shallow a bit but it is not a point. My kind wishes and FS.
Alexei.
