The fly up close

Flowers are a delight to photograph; not only for their beauty, but also for how other forms of life use them. I was pleased to make these two captures of a fly on a daffodil:

The fly attended its business for around a minute before it flew away, which was more than enough time for me to photograph it. Its rare to receive the chance to take pictures of insects on flowers: they usually fly away when I'm as close to them as I was when I took these.
