Hello Marie,
A very good macro of a frontal view of this Eristalis hoverfly taken with fine sharpness to show the head and how it differs from the male with its centrally-meeting eyes (the males have no brains!:-))
Nicely composed on the red flower with good lighting.
TFS this fine image,

Encore plus joli que le mâle car les couleurs ici sont bien saturées. Merci de m'avoir fait connaître cette espèce d'Eristale.

Hello Marie, You have taken the correct moment to capture and with good clarity. Ganesh

A remarkable shot that stands out for for its sharp and even focus on the entire Hoverfly, Marie.
The frontal POV is very apt and the subject appears three-dimensional here.
The colours too are wonderful and rich.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Marie, again.
Great scene and perfect reproduction of tiniest details of the flower, hoverfly and their colours. Framing of the scene is superb too. Your WS is amazing and it deserves to be shared as a separate image. Bravo.

Hello Marie!
Among many pictures of E. tenax this one can be almost overlooked. Fortunatelly I did not do it :>
Very nice, optimistic composition with natural vivid colours. I like POV and details too.
Bravo and have a nice Sunday!

PS. Many thanks for marking my last picture as your favourite, it is a great honour for me :)
