Hi all,This is Hoverfly shot at Park next to my Apartment.I was testing my new Nikon Cool Pix which I brought for general use and this was the result I got!!
The pic is resized and cropped, used magic wand and the softened the area selected to remove noise.
Flies in the Diptera family Syrphidae are commonly known as hoverflies, flower flies, or Syrphid flies.
As their common names suggest, they are often seen hovering or nectaring at flowers; the adults feed mainly on nectar and pollen, while the larvae (maggots) eat a wide range of foods. In some species, the larvae are saprotrophs, eating decaying plant and animal matter in the soil or in ponds and streams. In other species, the larvae are insectivores and prey on aphids, thrips, and other plant-sucking insects. Aphids alone cause tens of millions of dollars of damage to crops worldwide every year, and so aphid-feeding hover-flies are being recognised as important natural enemies of pests, and potential agents for use in biological control. Adult syrphid flies are important pollinators.

Hope you ppl will like it

Goutham, Hope you are doing fine. Nice shot and you have made this Nikon work well. take care Ganesh

Hi Goutham,
Nice Capture with your new camera.


Hi Goutham,
A nice try with your new camera. The picture is sharp but the flash has burnt some areas of the nice looking leaf. How about trying to put a thick piece of tissue paper over the flash and try (4 folds will do I think).
Thanks a lot for sharing.
