On The Fly
Posted By: Nitrok, 06-03-2009, 01:32 AM

I was shooting some of these hover flies couple of days ago. Some of photos were even sharp.
These guys move so fast when they aren't hovering.

And the first photo is single exposure even though it may seem that it has been combined from a three different photos.

They look like they're lining up to land, great capture.

Both good shots. But the first is outstanding and is beautifully cropped to accentuate the movement and interplay of the bees.
