...nothing quite like 'em huh?

This hover fly was happily sipping opiates from one of the poppies in the garden. He/She was there long enough for me to go inside, get the tripod, set up and take the shot. The hoverflies are about 10mm long - they are an absolute ##### (<EDIT: I didn't realise the Nikonians 'naughtiness' filter was quite that sensitive!) to try and capture whilst hovering!

AF 75-300mm Nikkor @ 300mm
1/250sec @ f/8
