I’d been seeing these tiny flies darting around in the yard for months now. I didn’t know what they were until I saw some posts in the DPReview NEX forums. They seem to be a popular subject. They were difficult to photograph, but I can see why people prefer the hoverflies–they’re interesting, without being gross (like blowflies). The second was cropped into a vertical orientation (thanks for the suggestion Danny). I really want to get a shot of one of these fellas in flight/hover.
