    Thanks a lot guys.
    It wasn't very easy to get these shots,when i tried to get the flowers in focus aswell then the Hover fly wasn't in focus.
    I was going to take pics of the flowers but then i saw this Hover fly on the flower i just had to get some shots of it in flight since i have more than enough pics of it when not in flight;)

    Fantastic work capturing him in flight (I have yet to get any decent flight shots - lots missed and blurry ones though ;)).
    Musy say that of the first set the 4th is the best - good colours, fantastic sharpness and great use of depth of field on the subject. Of the second set the first might not have the focus right where you want it idealy, but I do really like the composition and the difficulty of getting a sharp shot when they come towards you is not to be underestimated - so well done!
