I love Hoverfly shots This one looks a little flat and a little soft and a too central in the frame.
I have taken some liberties with it if you don't mind. Just a touch of contrast and sharpening is all.

Not sure you haven't slightly overdone the sharpening, Clarky, but it is an improvement.

So, they DO land once in a while.

Certainly one of the more attractive insects.

Thanks for the input Clarky. I like what you did with the contrast, but I agree that it may be slightly oversharpened. This one actually stayed landed for 20 minutes!
