Mark, you should change you ID to "The Fly" because your fly shots are excellent. The others are great too but that first and second fly shot are super.

Mark, all are amazing shots, and #5 the super close up is even more amazing, the detail is outstanding.

Those are great! I really like the black and white fly and the jumper! Your hoverflies are huge, ours are about half the size of a housefly. It looks like it's about the same size as the big robberflies I shot in Texas.

Thanks Raf, Annie, Gerry, Ted, Hiroshi and Vaiboy for the nice comments. I eventually confirmed ID of the black and white fly as Anthomyia pluvialis, not a Cluster fly as i first thought.
The Hoverflies are quite large, almost the size of honey bees.A few smaller ones have been showing up too, but as of yet I`ve been unable to get any shots as theyre even more restless than the ones above.
Love the Robberfly pic Vaiboy, thats a species i`ve yet to capture too.....

Didn`t do much shooting today....instead had a mess about with different sharpening techniques with the jumper shots from yesterday. This is the same shot as I posted yesterday, but with selective sharpening to the eyes and palps.I think it`s improved the shot but would be interested to hear what you think? does it look ok or maybe oversharpened ? (sometimes hard to decide on my monitor as it`s old and delapidated)...
