[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This poor roberfly, was tired of hunting in beautiful flowers, surrounded by exuberant vegetation and in a heaven of blured backgrounds, and decided to have a sunbath on a melamine table I was working on.

Regard, Felipe.

Hello Felipe and Cristina,
I have never seen a Robberfly portrayed in this way!
The light management against the white melamine is great and the sharpness and colours every good from a fine POV. It seems to have a parasitic tick on its leg¨.
Thanks and have a good weekend to you both,

Hola Felipe,
ja.... jaaaaaa.... jaaaaaaa... buena foto, en realidad un poco carente de nitidez pero nada serio; y ciertamanete es todo un merito exponer correctamente contra semejante superficie, y lo has hecho muy bien!... pero la nota vale los dos puntos, y más!.... jaaaa... jaaaa :) Saludos, feliz fin de semana.

This is very different Felipe.
Its not the kind of POV I would expect you to usually use.
Was this a hurried handheld shot? It doesn't seem quite as sharp as your usual work, still we can see good detail and nice light.
I have some macros of a mosquito that i never posted because it was not on a natural setting. Now I think I will :)

Hi Felipe & Cristina,
A nice capture of this beautiful robberfly with white background. Very good details and nice composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.
