The gardens at Baddesley Clinton are small and very well tended, and present a number of opportunities for the photographer. It took a few attempts, but this hoverfly eventually ended up where I wanted him (or her!) adjacent to these fantastic lilies.

Photography stuff: 18-70mm lens at 70mm, 1/320 sec at f/4.5 (I used a large aperture in order to minimise depth of field – I just wanted the lilies and the hoverfly in focus).
