Brian took this image of the hoverfly when on holiday in Wales last year.

He commented: “I was lucky that it stayed on the flower for over a minute, allowing me to get quite a number of shots in the sequence to ensure I captured one in focus.”

The shot was handheld using a Nikon D300, with a 70mm Sigma macro lens. The ISO was set to 800.
