Hover Fly on Nutsedge Flower Close Up

This little bee-fly decided to make my life a bit easier and sit still and pose for this photo! I didn't realise it had such stunning eyes until I looked at my camera screen later on. I just needed some practice with my close up and macro shots, and since I don't own a macro lens it's quite a challenge! And yes, I do have a tripod, but don't even know where it is at this point in time. So all photos are taken freehand and with breath held till I'm blue in the face or get the shot, whichever comes first!! And this little creature and others like it makes it worthwhile and being able to share these amazing creatures with everyone who never thought twice when they saw them flitting around, or never had the chance to see one from this close up.
