Flight of the Hoverfly

Wildlife Photography : Nigel Borrington

1st July and our local woodlands and fields are full of life ( Bees, Hoverflys and butterflys ) are everywhere.

For sometime I have been trying to capture these great insects in flight, using a macro lens and a high shutter speed, the images I post here are of a Hover-fly as it fixed its motion for a few seconds in front of my lens.

Its was a great feeling to look at these images at home for the very first time, freezing the movement of this fly that appeared in-front of me to never stop its motion as it went about its life and fleeting tasks.
