      I was taking a photo of the Verbena as it has such interesting colours at this time of the year, the hoverfly is a bonus!

      Thanks Brian, it was such a still day that I thought I’d take my prime lens out for a wander – should have put the macro lens on!

        I do a lot of macros with my telephoto ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Margaret. The verbena is a lovely colour now. The hoverfly a bonus. I never knew there were ones with snouts!

      Yes, I do like to get in close, though there are a few too many spiders around the garden now. Urgh!

  3. A wonderful photo! I never seem to manage to capture those mall details.

      It was a rare still day so I was out looking for insects. Should really have put the macro lens on, but too lazy ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. A beauty of a shot, Jude.

  5. Fabulous macro shot, Jude.

      Thanks Carol. I really ought to have put the macro lens on. Next time!

    Excellent image
    I never knew the common name for this species.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I wasn’t sure what it was until I looked it up.

        We only get one snouted one here in Ireland but I have only known it by its scientific name, Rhingia campestris
