I suppose I should start off by apologising to anyone who was expecting a nice flower shot from the thumbnail only to get a nasty shock, when they then came face to face with the details of the hoveryfly's compound eyes. They are amazing though, particularly in large.
I don't think this hoverfly was too well, it seemed really sluggish, probably a result of the stormy last couple of days and the sudden drop of temperature today to normal levels for late October. Still in two months time today it will be the shortest day and longest night. We will still have to get through the Winter, but we will have the comfort of knowing that the longer days are coming.
