This hoverfly was drinking a dew drop of the Gladioli whilst still inflight. Precision flying at its best !

Tiny hover fly taking a rest. At only 5mm and so many spider webs around it's a difficult time for this little fly

Starting to see more Crane flies this one just missed becoming a large meal for the orbweaver spider just out of shot.

I have a giant hosta plant with leaves over 12" wide and the hover flies just love it. This large hoverfly just stayed put despite the lens being only an inch away from it

Good deed of the day !!
I found this Cabbage White stuck in a web in my greenhouse. At first I thought it was dead but as I got close it sprang into life which surprised me as the resident Orbweaver spider had ignored it !!
I carefully pulled it free and let it go but I think it was exhausted so it stuck around for some time and even let me place it on different flowers for a couple of shots
