A tiny Hoverfly heading towards a coneflower.
I was trying to photograph the coneflower at different angles and I could see something in the viewfinder but had no idea at the time what it was and that it was in focus! :-)

Wonderful shot of this beautiful coneflower and insect taken with sharp detail, vivid color and terrific lighting, Sue!! You are so lucky to find a cone flower where the petals are perfect. The ones around her are really grungy and damaged.
