He looks like he spread his wings and posed for the camera. Very nice picture. You could crop tight to the flower he is on, and it would make a neat composition. Sharp!

Nice little hover fly. It looks good even if fly isn't in the center.

I deliberately composed it this way. Maybe I'm a bit odd, but I prefer my composition to be a bit different. :P

Sharp photograph and the composition is not bad at all :D . Someone once told me that it is what the photographer theirself likes, sees and tries to express, that is most important and that makes sense, seeing as though you cannot please everyone. :D

I like the way the flowers and fly pop out of the background in the picture and the fly is very sharp...spring has sprung there in Tasmania.

Nice hoverfly. Attractive bee mimic.
