Hello Pat,

A very good macro photography of this insect. I really don't know how you can distinguish between so many different species of flies that look similar.
The composition is excellent and the empty space was distributed very well. I like the way you centered your composition around one of the hotspots and how you followed the rule of thirds. The colors are great and exposure very good. It seems to me you were facing a backlight situation. but you handled it very well. Somehow it looks like you focused on the flower because it seems to be sharper than the insect but it might just be my monitor or the insect was moving very fast. Anyway, a good presentation! TFS!

With Friendly Regards,
Eddie

Hello Pat,
Excellent capture of H. pendulus against the light with fine sharpness and in a superb composition with the yellow flower. The neutral BG is excellent too.
This species seems to be very common this year in Sweden.
Thaks for sharing,
Ivan

Great closeup with good focus and clarity. Everything seems to be the same shades of yellow, bee and flower. Well done.

TFS!

bonjour pat
oui c'est ce que je pensait,l'image me semblait un peu sombre mais cela s'explique avec le jour qui fuit.as-tu utilisé un flash?
en revanche la netteté est excellente.

Pat, Oh Awesome Excellent shot. Wonderful position and lovely focus. WOW again Ganesh

Extraordinario. Hermoso y el enfoque mucho más diferente. Quiero especialmente la manera usted permite el juego ligero con abeja de tis. Muy bien presentado en un modo diferente o estiliza. Trabajo bueno.
