Hoverfly on a Paris Daisy


Today I have been outside in the bright sunshine taking photos. I still have a few Paris Daisies in the garden and the bees were very busy collecting pollen. It is a real challenge being fast enough to get good photos and this was one of the best I took. I am pleased with how it turned out. I love the contrast with the bright yellow flower and the subdued dark background. Forever a taste of a late summer in New Zealand.
Happy Snapping

I have been informed on Flickr that the insect is a Hoverfly not a bee.
