  5. Excellent shots, #4 has awesome detail.
  6. Hi Yvette!

    Not a Hover but a Robber Fly. They are not as nice behaiving like Hovers, these hunt other insects and suck them empty...

    Nice shots!

    Thank you all for your kind comments and thanks Jukka for the i.d. My book of insects is packed away ready for our move so I couldn't look it up. I will look out for them eating a meal. That would be a good set of pics to take.
  9. Big eyes? No wonder..I`m pinching a loaf! Do you mind?:biggrin:
    Nice capture..
  10. Nice detail, Yvette. I'm glad these are little critters, if they suck their prey dry:biggrin:.
  11. Wow! Love the detail on the eyes.
