Hallo Silvio
Another stunning macro from your lens. What a delight to look at such a perfect focused shot, filled with warm and rich colours. The detail captures is simply remarkable and pleasant to look at and admire. The whole image is just like your previous one, jam packet with pleasant features and a sheer enjoyment to look at. The almost blue flower with its pollen covered anthers is very beautiful and eye-catching. Thanks for sharing this beautiful image.
Best regards
Anna

The glassy wings look fabulous Silvio, fine details..
I see your reflection on the top of the thorax, if I'm not mistaken :)
Great comp, DOF, and BG.
Well done,
Howard

Hello Silvio,
I love this, the Hoverfly is perfectly in focus and details are very sharp indeed. Its colours look beautiful against the light blue flower and the wings look like glass. A fine composition too. Excellent work!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

It is almost as if I can see your reflection. That's how close in you got on this one Silvio..and quite the depth of field for being in so close. Certainly again among your better works!
Bob

Ciao Silvio,
hai sempre qualche scatto con cui continuare a meravigliarci. Inizio col dire che la luce sul piccolo insetto e sul bellissimo fiore è fantastica. E poi cosa dire dei colori? Sono eccezionalmente vivi come pure la nitidezza dei dettagli. Una curiosità su questa foto è che ho avuto subito l'impressione che sull'eupeodes si riflettesse la tua immagine nel momento dello scatto; poi nella descrizione me l'hai confermato. Hai mica utilizzato un 105mm macro?
Livio

wow Silvio , you take a perfect picture of this hoverfly, briliant details , perfect light and sharp , wonderful colours ,

Hi Silvio. This is a first class close up of the hoverfly. The detail and sharp focusing is spot on. Bright colours. and a good top POV. I am sure i can see you in the shine on the body. very well done TFS,
Nick..

Ciao Silvio,
eccellente macro con straordinaria definizione, effettivamente il sensore della D300 è eccezionale anche ad alte sensibilità, la D200 ha notevoli problemi già a 400 iso, a parte l'osservazione che ti hanno fatto sul riflesso rispetto al quale credo non avessi alternative (il POV mi sembra ideale), l'immagine è fantastica.
Complimenti.
Maurizio

Hi Silvio

Very nice macro here from you.
The wide DOF ensured you'd catch this hoverfly in very nice focus and present it with excellent sharpness.
I also like the color palette here very much - the black and yellow on the insect goes so well on that beautiful blue flower with all its hues.
Good composition and exposure, too.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Silvio,

Another superb macro. I love the wings and eyes of this hoverfly. Excellent colors and details of the entire insect. Beautiful flower with lovely shades of blue. I still don't know how you get so close to a fly without making it take off.

Jane

Olá Silvio

Uma foto magnífica!
Cores encantadoras...
Os detalhes do inseto são demais interessntes, o brilho e delicadeza das asas, tudo é perfeito, parabéns!

Hello Silvio !
I just realized I have missed several picture from you, its a pity, for each of them is very beautiful. I really like this one, for the tender blue color of the flower, but also for the wonderful details you managed to capture on the Hiverfly, and for the beautiful composition and POV. It's really a wonderful photo. Very well done !
Valerie.

Excelente Silvio !!!
Un gran cambio dentro de tu buena línea.
Felicidades.

Dear Silvio,
I saw this beauty quite a few days back and had to come back to tell you my appreiation for this one.The tight composition is enriched by the blue of the flower and its rich details,The fly itself is captured in excellent sharpness and PoV.I can almsot see your reflection as you crouch down to get a superb composition in place.The glazy texture of the fly's wings is amazing.

I also love the hint of blue that lay between the fly's eyes and which so well compliments the blue of the flower.All in all this a composotion par excellence and i would love o add this to my "unforgettable theme".

Thanks and cheers
silpa
