Beautifully crisp image of a lovely critter...I am very fond of Hoverflies, Lisl.
Lisl: I am, too, Ray. There have been very few around this year which has been a disappointment to me, but also rather worrying.
Goes well with Anne's microscopic vision...
Lisl: Ah yes - her housefly microscopic slide from yesterday
They're so pretty! Fantastic shot - nice and sharp!
Lisl: Thank you, Elizabeth. It is nice to catch one still!
Perfect capture
Lisl: Merci beaucoup, Marie, et bonne journée, Marie

It's cracking view of it, too; wonderful detail. It looks like other flying buggy things have enjoyed the leaf, too, judging by the holes in it.
Lisl: Yes - the leaf certainly has been sampled

I love the way they try and disguise themselves as wasps Lisl.
Lisl: Sensible move, Chad
I like hoverflies. They have attitude pretending to be fierce creatures
Lisl: They, do, Bill, and they are gentle creatures, feeding on nectar and pollen

Superb, Lisl
Lisl: That is kind of you, Richard, thank you
Quite nice little characters aren't they.
Lisl: I think so, Brian
It is looking right at you with it's remarkable set of perfectly shot eyes. Bravo.
Lisl: Thank you, Mary. How different the eyes are from those of a wasp
Great close up, Elisabeth.
Lisl: Thank 'ee kindly, Frank
Attractive and useful insects, a pity some people mistake them for wasps.
Lisl: Yes, they are really nothing like them in character or demeanour
That is really nicely shot. Very sharp.
Lisl: Thank you very much, Michael
lovely hoverfly Lisl... a great macro....petersmile
Lisl: Thank you very much, Peter
Have hardly seen any insects in the garden this year - things are getting really bad, I think.
Lisl: I agree, Tom. I have done well for dragonflies in the garden, very well for moths (humane moth trap) but not so well for butterflies, and I have seen very few hoverflies on my walks this year
