[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le syrphe ceinturé (episyrphus balteatus) se reconnaît aux étroites bandes noires supplémentaires qui se situent sur les 3e et 4e segments de l'abdomen (et sont les ceintures qui expliquent nom donné à cette espèce).

Il s'agit d'une espèce commune dans les jardins qui se rencontre de mars à novembre, voire toute l'année dans les régions méditerranéennes.

Il se nourrit de nectar, plus particulièrement d'ombellifères.
Sa larve se nourrit de pucerons.

Il peut former des essaims migrateurs denses.

Dans l'anglais pour un morceau. J'ai eu deux photos enlevées et ne suis pas dans meilleur d'humeurs avec Vole. Il est le jury seul sur ce qu'obtient tiré. Je n'ai rien dit. ..because qu'est la façon c'est...

Ohhh que bonita toma, tanto el sírfido como la flor. Excelente iluminación, profundidad y limpieza de colores. Esa no entiende de Flamencos y Valones ... :-)

Un abrazo Pat.

bonjour Pat,

magnifique macro j'aime beaucoup, les couleurs la netteté et le cadrage y est parfait une photo que j'aurait aimé faire, bravo

Hi Pat,
I like the color, comp, BG, POV, detail, and exposure here..
Overall a great image, but I think more DOF would make it better.
Well done.

Nous n'avons pas ces insectes ici je crois. C'est une excellente macro, vraiment bien composée et détaillée, les couleurs et l'ensemble ressemblent à un toile, c'est de toute beauté!

Bonjour Pat,

Superbe photo que j'aurais aimé prendre !

L'espèce a beau être commune, encore faut-il se trouver au bon endroit et au bon moment, et surtout avoir beaucoup de talent pour la photo...

Merci

Liliane

Dear Pat!
Syrphid flies are not easy to photograph. Even if they are relatively "big" flies they are also very mobile and usually fast. To take good quality picture we need a few elments: good idea, good photographer, good weather condition and interesting object - I can find all these "elements" in this presentation. Photo has perfect details, sharpness and beautiful colouration. Moreover ther is nic contrast between fly and BG :)
Best regards and TFS,
Radomir

Hi Pat,

your macro shots are absolutely great! I chose this one for its excellent composition, as usual great colors and sharpness!
