The Mating Flies

Hello everybody, I was away for few days to attend one wedding. Sorry, no time to comment all those images I missed these days.
This image of mating flies I captured last Sunday and used built in flash as it was very cloudy. It also helped to get some details on these flies. I had to crop the image for this presentation.

Hi Nagraj,

Welcome back home,and you are back with ever appealing macro works,amazing details of matting flies, well composed, good pov and complimentary background, I think the flash has really highlighted picture and details.TFS.

Just think....if they could NOT do this...what would become of the fly swatter industry?:-) Thousands of jobless people...seems to me that natural things in all cases whether good insects or not...makes for industry...but the world is truly thinking economy now...who wold have thought of a connection between this and that? Only nutso Bob I guess.

Ciao Nagaraj, fantastic macro with maiting flies, great diagonal composition with fascinating blurry BG, superb details and splendid sharpness, I like a lot, ciao Silvio

Hello Nagraj,
An excellent macro of a pair of mating flesh flies taken from a fine POV with pretty good sharpness against a pleasing neutral BG. I like the composition on the sloping stem too.
