Look at how shiny! I have no idea what they are (some kind of a hoverfly maybe?), but I loved watching them do their little mating dance in the garden.
So far I’ve seen a few different versions, all metallic – green, orangey-yellow, and fiery red.
I’m slowly learning the patience needed for macro photography; hopefully the skill will follow.
Although I think what I need more is to build up my hand strength – good grief that lens is heavy, for real!
