garden photography: good things come in threes

In April I’m looking for Macros or Close-ups in the Garden

(This month I want to see Macro photography or close-ups of anything you’d find in a garden –  so look out for unusual details) If you would like some tips then please visit my first post of the month.

Common Drone Fly – Eristalis tenax

This stocky hoverfly is the commonest ‘drone’ fly, so called because they mimic bee drones (male hive bees). Thanks to Ark, yet again for identifying this one – to me they all look like bees!

(it is worth clicking on full size when you view these images in the gallery)
