great capture (as usual), TFS Ori

Hello Trung!
Very unique and beautiful picture! I like a lot its composition. These two bugs made a very special shape - a heart shape! :>
Bravo and all the best from Poland,

Another mind blowing image from you, Trung.
I have seen these flies for the first time and they are amazing. In your picture, they look like mirror images -- so identical.
The details are pretty good.

Hallo Trung
I enjoy your images because they are very interesting, fascinating and exceptional and you show us creatures that are very scarce on the site or seldom seen. Your photography is high-quality and done with precision and care, but I and I am sure many other members would appreciate a bit more participation from your side. A little more information about the specific subject, other than just the name would already help a lot, and then the most important, interaction between other members, especially if they have given you positive and good critiques on your unique postings, like the most have done since you started your journey on Trek Nature. Please see the mentioned as a positive thought and up building criticism. Thanks for sharing this macro of the Elephant trunk harvest-fly, which I found most intriguing. Best regards.

Dear Trung
This is like a Walt Disney Ballet!

I usually google for information before writing a critique - but your rare photo seems to beat even Google! The only info I found was about Control of rotting and browning of litchi fruit after harvest at ambient temperatures in China - due to Elephant Beetles in Lychees & Longans.

Concerning your photo: a bit more depth of field on the bottom of the left hand insect would have improved the image...

Having said this, it is a very special, interesting photo!
Enjoy the rest of your week-en
Kind regards
