A Busy Bee

I could not resist re-posting this photo from my friend 
Из серии «Танина ботаника»  in Ukraine.

This image shows a 12 mm large hoverfly called marmelade fly (Episyrphus balteatus) from top.

What a spectacular image!
The wings took me.
The glowing, translucent colours got me first, but yes, the wings are amazing. And the tiny hairs! So sharp.
I do like good macro work and that is stunning. It helped that the light was just about perfect!
