This is some kind of "Hoverfly"! This is one of the best pictures i have seen all parameters, like color, sharpness , POV and exposure are perfect.

Hi Jose.
Excellent image. Pin sharp, composition, colour and detail, all spot on. DOF really makes him stand out against the background.

pour ce qui est de la photo,pas besoin de vous dire qu'elle est extra!!!

Fantástica macro, Jose Ramón! Vaya detallazos!
Los colores son realmente preciosos y la composición magnífica.
De sírfidos no sé nada, pero espero que alguien sepa decirte la ID.
El link asociado es genial. Gracias.

Muy buenas José R.
Un gran acercamiento el que lograste, y he visto la otra foto y es tan buena o más que esta.
Yo en la identificación no te puedo ayudar, si te diré que es un gran macro.
Un saludo

hola Jose Ramón

magnifica acarcamiento con muy buenos detalles del insecto y colores naturales
el insecto resalta perfectamente sobre elfondo borroso

muy buena foto de aproximación



Gran trabajo José Ramón y más teniendo en cuenta el tamaño del insecto. Buen encuadre y excelente luz, ya que no se ven brillos por ningún lado.
Tienes razón en tu comentario sobre mi foto ( S. montana ), en vertical mejor, jeje.
