Hi Anne.
I like your nice close-up and amazing pictured scene. Perfectly detailed hoverfly on so beautiful flower is looked excellently. I also like very impressive lighting and illumination of the BG. DOF is selected greatly. Composition is perfect too. May be only petals are OE a little bit. My best wishes and TFS.
Alexei.

Liebe Anne,
ich bin daran, Deine neuesten Bilder anzusehen. Gut gelungen, die kleine Schwebfliege, und auf einer für uns ungewöhnlichen Blüte. beonders schön ist die Komposition, die nickenden Knospen und Blüte , von der sich die Fliege gut abhebt. Gratuliere!

Zur Artbestimmung: Du bist sicher haarscharf nah dran. Ein Problem ist noch, dass man auf der Photo nicht entscheiden kann, ob die weisslichen Abdominalflecken den Rückensegmentrand erreichen oder nicht. Es könnte auch ein Weibchen der Mondfleck- Waldschwebfliege sein (Dasysyrphus lunulatus. Dieses ist wie Lapposyrphus lapponicus in der Ebene und Gebirge häufig. Unterschied: die Fühler sind rotgelb bei L., schwarz bei D. (hier nicht auszumachen). Was für D. spricht, sind die dunklen Flügelmale am Vorderrand, die L. nicht hat.
Willkommen bei den Korinthenkackern! Eigentlich ja egal, wie sie heissen. Aber eben, jedes TN Bild ist später per Google abrufbar---dank der Artnamen, die wir mitliefern. Ich habe voller Freude festgestellt, dass Du offenbar gute Spezialliteratur hast, nicht viele Leute auf der Welt erkennen Lapposyrphus, eine Art, die erst 1967 beschrieben worden ist.
Mit herzlichen Grüssen
Dieter

Hello Anne,
It is difficult to be certain about the ID of this hoverfly as there are several closely similar geni. It could well be of the Dasysyrphus genus, but not being a syrphologist that is as far as I can go.
The shot itself is excellently composed together with the Potentilla flower, both being sharp and well set against a neutral BG, which makes the whole a fine image.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Salut Anne,
Le contraste, les couleurs et l'éclairages sont de tout beauté et que dire des détails et de la composition! Top qualité, bravo!
Claudine
