    Hey guys!
    Went down to my garden to see if i could get more shots of the hover flies in flight...i got 30 pics,never expected to get so many decent pics.
    These are some of the many pics i got.
    Not that great in details but i like it.
    Nothing done to these pictures except resized it.

    That way!

    I think the hand interferes with the image and a crop is needed.

    I agree with the crop since its now removed the distraction and the shot looks very sharp to start with so its worked well - it does show that the focuse was only just on the eyes (and a little more on his back) but honestly getting such shots sharp in any way is very hard. Your use of your hand as a sort of control on the insect is interseting, though its inclusion is a bit of a distarction.
    That said it does give an idea of just how small the hoverfly really is and if you work at it I think there is a composition in there which will work for both hand and bug :)
