Sharing... three hoverflies on a wildflower... September, 2009

three hoverflies on wildflower
While traveling, I choose to not carry my macro lens... it's quite heavy! This was taken using my 70-300 mm telephoto lens (a leftover from my film camera days) mounted on a tripod. I'm not sure what the wildflower is, but the bees and hoverflies were busily gathering pollen and I watched them (and photographed them) for quite awhile along the shore of Stanley Lake in Idaho.

(This image and the other images that will be included in my gallery show are in a set on Flickr that may be viewed as a slide show if you care to have a look.
