splendide image, avec un sujet pourtant centré. Mais ici il y a un équilibre avec l'arrière plan gauche et le duo fleur/insect. La transparence des ailes et la netteté sont super.

There seems to be far too many flies on this planet and here you come and introduce me to yet another new & unknown species and what an interesting one at that. What a remarkable snozzle this guy has.
I like this composition and although the flower is right in the centre of the shot you very creatively balanced it out nicely with the developing bud on the side. That dark green BG is perfectly complimentary to the snow white flower harbouring the fly. The little insect shows remarkable details and colours (especially on those golden coloured transparent wings). The exposure was spot-on as is evident by the extraordinary contrasts on the white flower.
Excellent work and TFS.

I can't remember to have seen this one before.
Clear picture, with great composition and very good details.
I like very much the neat aspect of the whites and the great contrast the add to the photo.
Thanks very much, MF, hope you follow well.

First of all, i hope you are feeling better now and your illness has past :)
Second: this is another terrific macro shot from you and again a fantastic double capture!

Ayant été en Valais quelques jours,mon message espère te retrouver rétabli. C'est encore une belle image, bien cadrée et avec un sujet intéressant que tu nous proposes. Cette mouche a un aspect assez étonnant avec cette longue trompe. La lumière est belle, soulignant les contrastes et le clair-obscur. Merci et bonne soirée

Very beautiful capture of this Dance fly on the pure white flower. Amazing sharp details. The white colour is striking against the dark background and the composition is very "elegant".
Many thanks, Ulla

Bonjour Christian, j'ai du retard!! Je n'ai pas trouvé votre insecte en vol! mais cette Empidide sur une blanche Silene est du plus bel effet. Je suis étonné de la profondeur de champ à 3.8! Félicitations, Didier.

I really like this image. What a delightful and sunny view. The details of both the flower and the fly are just stunning and I cannot say one is better than the other. The combination of colours of both the fly and the flower is a lovely combination and creates a most appealing and bright sight. I like the way you fit the flower in the frame, makes the details more closely to observe and appreciate. I like the fine detail of the wings that is so cleary shown. Thanks for sharing.
