  8. Such a cute photo of the hoverfly. His eyes look almost like he is wearing sunglasses, and his little antennae stick out so comically.

  23. Such a lovely blossom Gunilla, and the wings of the fly are quite beautiful too. Thanks as always for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro. I hope you will participate in the Gratitude Quilt this year. It is simple to join in and will make your heart happy when you see the love unfurl on Nov 27th. (no sewing involved) Just close your eyes. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Ask yourself "what am I grateful for in THIS moment?" listen to your heart and type out the words that flow from your heart and send them to me. There is a link to my email address and a link explaining this project if you don't know about it yet can be found at the top of my blog. If I've already asked you I apologize for being annoying :-)

  24. Nice 'teamplayers' in a wonderul color range.
    I love how the insect reaches out in the last pic ... and adore those shiny wings (makes me wanna touch 'em!).

    Lots of love,

  26. Incredible macros! love this insect that can be seen from so upclose in images! (never knew about "hoverfly" as an insect from family Syrphidae and because of your term I looked for the meaning! thanks!) Glad about the discovery I made and Have a great week!
