Very cute subject. I love these little guys. The light areas are a bit bleached and we're too far away still, but it's good. I'd have cropped away the lower part of the shot with the brown area.

I don't know what a hoverfly is, but I do know this is beautifully photographed. Focus is extraordinary. Colors pop. Detail is terrific. DOF work. Among my top picks.

One of the better bug shots but background needs some colour to brighten the shot up. Good focus.
