[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Back to roots - Syrphidae once again. Matting couple, distant reminiscence of gone summer. For hoverflies fans I recommend http://home.hccnet.nl/mp.van.veen/hf_index.html
Very good site with keys to European Syrphidae.
Picture taken as usually in Lodz's Botanical Garden.

Good capture Grzegorz, I hope you didn't disturb them too much. The females head is a little over exposed. Good details though.

These are Sphaerophoria sp. I not completely sure on the species, either scripta or interupta.

I dont think I have seen one of these here on TN. The sharpness is great and so is the DOF.

Excellent moment, Thanks for posting

Grzegorz, I seen these shots posted here at TN & have yet to record the mating of any species myself. This shot interesting shot has good detail. A bit on the bright side but it was probably mid-day? Thanx for posting!

Great moment Grzegorz. The details are sharp. The right one a bit bright. Well done.

They are don't ashamed to do it in the sun on the air?
Interesting moment, good photo.
