[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dovrebbe essere Xanthogramma pedissequum, una sirfide, ma non sono certo dell'identificazione, la provenienza è sempre la mia discarica fotografica estiva, di nuovo ho solo foto con la nebbia, ma non è che si veda un granchè...

Isn't that a gorgeous Hoverfly, Silvio!
I have never seen a species with such brilliant blue colours all over its body.
Thanks for sharing this lovely image from your archives and all the best.

Hi Silvio,

Very good macro shot of insect there.
I like the sharp transparent wing under natural lighting. Good DOF.
Lovely deep blue and yellow subject with green BG. TFS,
/Tabib/.

Hello Silvio,
Another brilliant entry with brilliant colors. Excellent details with the back exposed and well spread wings. I like it. Very well done and have a wonderful weekend.

Hello Silvio,
Fine macro of this Hoverfly on a beautiful leafy background that makes it stand out very nicely. Good details and colours. Very well composed too.
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Very nice Silvio. Your bee alike is looking as if he might have a natural blue sheen to him... Full frame image giving it some stature..

Hi Silvio,

Wonderful close-up of this fly. I've never seen a blue one before. Excellent details throughout. The wings are amazing. The colors show up well against the leaf.

Ciao Silvio,
come tu mi hai giustamente suggerito, il mio commento alle tue belle foto non si limiterà, d'ora in poi, a semplici e generici apprezzamenti, ma cercherò, nei limiti delle mie possibilità, di indicarti tutte le mie sensazioni e osservazioni, anche quelle non positive.
Ti prego, ovviamente, di fare altrettanto con me.
Venendo a questa immagine, mi piace senza riserve il soggetto, che non conoscevo e che mi pare correttamente determinato e l'inquadratura molto stretta che permette di osservarlo bene.
L'unica cosa che mi convince meno è l'eccessiva morbidezza della foto, forse dovuta ad un intervento di eliminazione del rumore di fondo, che, secondo me, ha tolto anche la scultura del tegumento, rendendolo troppo liscio: ma potrei sbagliarmi.
Un abbraccio,
Marcello
