You captured a great moment...wow!
The details are just superb with nice sharpness and well-chosen POV. The eyes and thorax parts of teh fly are wonderfully shown. I like the contrast between the leaf's green color and the red color of the fly. It is simply marvellous!
Thanks for sharing!
Amazing capture, Michal. Your shot looks so different from the usual ones because of the nice composition you have presented. This wonderful macro shows very good details of the fly, and of the leaf as well. Effective use of flash lighting.
Excellent macro shot of Greenbottle fly! The colors and textures on teh body of the fly are simply vivid especially thorax and abdomen. The red eyes are just striking. Great details with wonderful sharpness and nice POV. Well done!
Thanks for sharing!
Very nice picture Michal. The toad is just bright enough that it pops right out of the picture. I like the positioning of the toad as well. It's a very good and angle and pose. TFS
breathtaking view simply beautiful thanks for sharing
A very nice and natural shot!
By the way, how do you like that new 70 mm macro lens? It seems we still don't have it here in Russia.
Once I started with the superb Nikkor 60 mm lens, now I've got it back on DSLR, had time only to make a few shots, though...
A nice observation!
There's a small pond in our town park that surrounds a small cafe, it's full of duckweed (and rubbish that people used to throw there), and during a certain period in early summer it's teeming with these moths... They are also readily attracted to artificial light.
It's a pity we can't see some details, but your childhood story with notes on its habits is sufficient enough to point that it's not a Clubionidae but a Dysdera sp. (Dysderidae). It must have large chelicerae projecting and diverging anteriourly, with 3 4 cheliceral teeth in one row.
Witam Michale! Bardzo dobre macro, świetnie widoczne szczegóły!Jest przerażający a jednocześnie taki niesamowicie piekny!!! Pozdrawiam
Just to add some entomological details.
This species usually preys on snails and slugs and because of that, as other members of the genus Carabus, it is protected in most European coutries.
