|Hoverfly, Melanostoma scalare, on Field Bindweed, Convolvuus arvensis. Downe, 25 August 2012.|
I do still go out on general field trips. These are a few close-up photos taken in the fields near Downe, quite close to Biggin Hill airport where we occasionally heard small jets taking off. This first one is a favourite subject of mine; a hoverfly on a flower. There was some occasional drizzle, hence the small drops on the petals.
