Taken in my garden.

Can you spot the photo-bombing hoverfly?

Another fine close-up from you Keith. I imagine you use that freezer spray to stop these in their tracks so you can photograph them so splendidly :) Well done.

Well captured Keith and I love the photo bombing bee! My brother bought me a buddleia for my birthday recently, after I was complaining about a lack of butterflies this year, and as soon as I had planted it I had a red admiral visit :-))

Take care and have a great weekend Keith.

Viele Admirale besuchen meinen Garten, wenn die Pflaumen reif sind. Sie mögen wohl den süßen Saft. Die Schwebfliege mag den Nektar des Sommerflieders.
Eine schöne Nahaufnahme, Keith!
