selam radomir; superb macro shot nice details well done
excellent detail and clarity, the dark background has really made your subject stand out here. Does shooting this kind of thing at night require any special equipment or technique? Please excuse my ignorance in this matter :o)
Super fine detail here Rad...Very high quality work with that camera....You sure know your insect world...do you think it is true that John Baptist ate only locusts? I have often wondered...

nice macro capture, great details capture, particularly wings
Hello my friend!
Nice to see you again and i would like to take this chance to wish you (although i'm a little late, i know) very happy holidays and the very very best in all aspects for the next year!
2007 was indeed a great year, one in which i made very many friends all over the world, among which i'm happy to have you too. Let's hope that in 2008 we'll meet or at least collaborate in other aspects, too :) (by the way, did you know that our publication - the North-Western Journal of Zoology is now covered by ISI?... :) )
And now for this great may fly shot: i love it!
I've always considerred mayflies as delicate beauties but i never managed some nice shots of them. However, i see you have, and of more species, including this amazing one with such vivid red eyes...wow! They really look amazing!
I also like the fact that there is nothing else in the frame to distract the attention froe subject...the small advantages of shooting at nights ;)
Very good side POV, excellent sharpness and magnification and very good flash work, too.
A pleasure to watch...i hope you'll get more next year so that all of us can enjoy these magnificent creatures.
Bravo and TFS my friend!

What a superb capture of this beautiful May Fly. It's very well lit showing interesting details clearly. Amazing eyes and its pose and the wings look really great here. Very well composed too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Perfect night shot. I only several night wild nature pictures. It is really difficult task.
Flash work is superb as well as the sharpness and details of the insect and twig. Composition is wonderful too. Many thanks and kind regards.

your may-fly is wonderful and I'm happy you show it, because I also made a shot of a similar one this year, but with yellow eyes.
And I was curious if it realy was a may-fly, the others had more tiny eyes - and not yellow.
Sometime I will also show mine.
Thanks for yours, I like it

non è certamente facile riuscire a fotografare così bene questi piccoli insetti trasparenti.
Tu lo hai fatto in modo magnifico.
Mi piace soprattutto la trasparenza delle ali e l'occhio bicolore.
Complimenti anche per le interessanti note.
