Hello Satish,
a superb picture of the robberfly with exact focus and excellent sharpness. The background is smooth and non-distracting. Fortunately - or your intention - the lighter green in the background behind the head allows to see the antennae very clear (against the dark green probably hardly visible).
Best wishes, Peter

HI Satish,
I like it - special the green eyes are amazing.
I also had one here some days ago - with a smaller fly as the prey - but mine has brown eyes. So yours is realy wonderful, thanks
