By jove sir, my entire household have just risen to their feet to give this wonderful image a damn good round of applause!
Ray: Thank you, Philips Household. While everyone is on their feet, Chris, they might like a short stroll to the local ice-creamery.
Bit of a designer bug on this one Ray
Ray: Hoverflies are rarely drab, are they, Bill.

Jumbing for joy - I like the zinnias very much, a typical cottage garden flower in Eurtope.
Ray: Zinnias bring many insect visitors into the garden, Philine.

A likey, Ray, the best ever of your fine work, I think.
Ray: I am delighted that you like it, Mary. The hoverfly was intent on snacking and didn't seem to mind me getting up close to it.
Certainly a very colourful creature.
Ray: Hoverflies are often brilliantly coloured, Brian.
Today I was watching a gay pride, parade,this bug could have been in it! great close up, Ray.
Ray: Hoverflies are amongst the most exuberantly coloured of insects, Frank.
Wow - that's a jewel-like bug!
Ray: Pretty, isn't it, Tom.
Almost looks alien. Cool shot.
Ray: Insects are cool beasts, Jacquelyn...actually much of the World of Small is cool!
Ooooh he's so pretty!! This is a really beautiful photo!!
Ray: I beautiful little critter, for sure, Elizabeth.
