HoverflyJune 14, 2015

  Hoverflies are tiny pollenators, about the size of a pencil or ballpoint pen point - with wings.
  Trying to photograph anything so small is challenging, since the depth of field becomes minimal when getting very close to one.
  On the other hand, minimal depth of field creates an interesting 3D effect.

Photo note: I used the Pentax K20D, with the SMC-A* 200mm macro lens, on June 10 and 12, 2015, for these photos.
