I like this one Michal!
Sharp and well exposed. Diagonal position of the insect is good. And I love the position of the yellow flower. Well balanced composition.
Beautiful shot, TFS.

Well worth the capture, Michal. The iridescence is beautiful. I have read of these insects, but don't recall seeing an image - particularly such a good one.

What is the most striking about this shot is the composition. It is superb. The colors are vivid, and detail is very sharp. An Excellent job!

Really great shot of this rarely found insect! It stands out so clear and bright against the background. The greyish/silvery/transparent colours of it must be difficult to reproduce but they come out so extremely well here. And what a great note along with it! Many thanks!

Interesting insect, Michal. I think this is a first for me. It must be very hard to photograph something that is so transparent, but you did a wonderful job. The focus and exposure are excellent. The bright yellow flower provide a colorful BG. Well done and TFS. : )

A nice clear macro Michal.Good composition too.
I have seen these but never in a flower,usually by a stream in the forest,or near an outside light at night.
A very interesting note too.I've never heard them drumming,but then I doubt that I would.Probably beyond the range of human hearing.
Good work,well done.

Bardzo ladne macro Michale. Owad pieknie wyszedl na zoltym tle. Faktycznie, raczej trudne do 'zlapania'. Bardzo ciekawa notka!

Hello Michal, I think thatīs a Sialis lutaria (Alderfly). Look this link: http://popgen0146uns50.unimaas.nl/~jlindsey/commanster/Insects/Misc/Megaloptera/Sialis.lutaria.html and http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/United_Kingdom/photo15541.htm
Michal, this is an excellent Picture. Great colours, excellent sharpness, a very nice composition. Well done. TFS.
