    It's a great pic...I'm not too sure what it is though. I saw one picture on your site named Hoverfly and it looked the same as the one in this photo.

    That's a great macro shot. There are many varieties of wasps and bees. You would have a better idea if you saw it in flight. some hover flies mimic the bee / wasp design but they can remain stationary in flight. Did you set up that shot or just find it there?

    How you've captured the water droplets is amazing. Very good shot.

    Yes, it is a Hoverfly .mouthparts and eyes are differant then wasps and bees. It is funny though such a creatures fool everybody including people.

    I use a Macro 100mm lens together with a 36mm extention tube.

    The raindrops are real and shot after a shower. When I am out I carry "the apparatus" ---like a friend it used to call ---and look for insects or whatever is intresting.

    The apparatus is a construction with 3 flashlights and freeze the situation
    with light. F 22 in quite normal to shoot with.

    Thanks for Your reactions and anwers.

    Gerard,

    Hi Toby

    Ik used Kodak E100s for this kind of pictures but I switched over to Fuji Provia 100F since a year.I don't know if they sell the Kodak E100s anymore.I believe it is replaced for a new film.I ran out of film so I have to check on the new kodak film aswell.

    Best regards,

    Gerard,
