[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In English people usually say : to make a mountain out of a molehill. In russian we usually say: To make an elephant from a fly.
This fly looks big enough to be an elephant.
It is about 4-5 mm in length.
Unfortunately I am not a specialist and can't identify this insect. So here it is - just a small fly.

I used Sony-F828 in tele mode. + normal 58 mm lens from an old SLR and tripod, though in this case it was twopod or even onepod.

Una buena macro Siarhei, con agudeza, buen DOF y POV.
Los colores aparecen algo apagados, pero la composición general es muy agradable.
Leí tu explicación a Taba sobre el post procesado para fusionar 2 imágenes y realmente es un muy buen trabajo.
Saludos... Ricardo
