Hi Malgoisa,
it could be a robber fly, but I'm not sure.
The POV is unusual but very nice.
Good details and good DOF.
Well done.

A menacing POV: the fly looks scary. The DOF brings a lot of emphasis to the eyes which is cool.

Veeery nice macro shot! Great sharpness. Good POV!


je pense que c'est une mouche scorpion,j'en ai une dans ma galerie pour comparer.
tres bonne netteté sur la tete,c'est bien fait.

Hi Malgosia,
Great macro shot, good POV and DOF.
Well done

It could be a hower fly /robber fly !
Good details, DOF and superb perspective.

Isn't it the same creature Hekcik gave us a wonderful face close-up of on the previous page, Malgosia?
Anyway, this too is a good macro with great focus on the face and front portion of this creature.

Bonjour Malgosia
C'est une excellent Prise de vue avec un très joli macro de ce qui pourair être un sauterelle ! La composition très jolie avec de belles couleurs, grande acuité et détails. Merci pour le partage .
Au revoir et merci et bon week end....JP

Czesc Malgosiu!
Fantastyczne makro, moge tylko pozazdroscic. Kompozycja i POV powala na kolana. Superdokladnosc. Z tej perspektywy trudno powiedziec co to jest, ale mysle, ze wskazowke stanowia tu plamki na skrzydlach.

Hi, it's a Snipe fly, very much like a Scorpion but without the beak and tail. Love the POV by the way.

cheers, Chris

Good photo and I like it! Posture colours, contrast and focus are perfect!

Hi Malgosia,
Very nice shot! Great POV, nice colours and clear details.
Thanks for sharing!

There wings a little are seen. Similar on "Panorpa communis". The photo is darkish, but rather impressive. Yesterday photographed same.

Hi, Malgosia.
Great macro. Sharp. Good details and nice BG.

Hi Malgosia,
This is great! I think your composition is perfect and the POV is dramatic. Excellent use of your flash to fill lightly. Sharp detail and perfect point of focus at F/5.6
Very well done!

Hi Malgosia,
Good detail, colours and sharpness. exposure and lighting are good. Good POV and composition.

Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

Wow ! What an impressive and interesting portrait that you have very well done ! I appreciate the POV and the details on head. For ID, perhaps a "Scorpion fly" with these kind of wings... Congratulations Malgosia and thanks for sharing.

Malgosia, superb again! Incredible pov here! Incredible face details also! But I like a lot the front legs that stucked together! Great colours also! Exceptional shot again. Thank you...

btw, for identification, looking at the wings, it can be a husk fly, rhagoletis pomonella or rhagoletis completa

Hi Malgosia,
great portrait of this insect,
great colors and details. BG ok.

Ciao Malgosia,
hai delle foto stupende!!!
Mi insegni a farle così?
Scherzi a parte, tutte le tue fotografie sono superbe, molta tecnica e buongusto.


ti metto tra i favoriti

Great Micro shot! I'm not very good at micro shots so I am always amaized when I see shots where people get so close. great job! TFS

Hello Malgosia, a great frontal shot of a fly with wonderful details and DOF. TFS.
Greetings from N. Cyprus,


Hola Malgosia,
Original encuadre para esta excelente foto de gran nitidez y mucho detalle, con una luz y fondo magníficos, saludos
José Ramón

Witam serdecznie!
Na wstepie wielkie dzieki za odwiedziny i komentarz do mojej fotki z estonskich torfowisk, milo wiedziec, ze przypadla Ci do gustu :)

Nawiazujac natomiast do zwierzaka ze zdjecia, jest to moim zdaniem muchowka z rodziny Rhagionidae - kobyliczkowate, najpewniej przedstawiciel rodzaju Rhagio.
Swoja droga bardzo fajna kompozycja i detal :)
Pozdrawiam serdecznie!
