Hover Fly. Do look at this Larger the better.

Hover Fly. Do look at this Larger the better.
I was waiting to move the very large bonsai after I was all set up to take photos of a bonsai on tripod I saw the hover Fly. See if you can see the wings they never stopped at all, if you look large you can see it feeding on the pollen of the flower.

I cant believe how well it came out considering how fast they move, must have just times its hover right.

I think that the Idea to shoot a few shots fast paid off you cant shoot this by press and shoot each shot they move to fast. glad you like it have to admit not one I thought I would get.

Certainly looks good close up Great catch Steve.
Did you take any shots at a higher speed? I would be interested to know what speed is needed to stop the wing movement.
