Hi Claude.
It seems to me that I have pictured this species one time but I am not sure. So attractive moment and scene. Flash light and DOF are superb. Details is ultimate as usual and colours are fine. Well done and kind regards.

Hello Claude,
Brilliant macro of this Fly. If it was as tiny as 3-4 mm then it may well be Drosophila funebris. You caught it from a fine POV and details are very sharp. Good use of the flash too! Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Claude,

A nice macro of this small fly,good sharpness and details where it counts,it contrasts very well against the dark BG,tfs


Bonjour Claude!

Ta mouche fait... mouche! En plein dans le mille! Très belle image avec de magnifiques détails et une exposition parfaite. Depuis que je suis sur TN et que je vois des mouches, j'ai un peu honte d'utiliser un tape-mouche...

Hello Claude,
a clear and brilliant presentation of the fly's frontal parts.
Precisely focused on the head.
Even the minute surface structures of the compound eyes are visable.
Sharpness and light direct the viewer to the important parts which you want to show us.
Best wishes, Peter

I miss the clarity of your work and realize it when you return for short visits..Wonderful image and done in your special style.

A beautiful fly portrait Claude and really needs no improvement, I just played with the colours and saturation to provide another version, hope you like it my friend.

Bonjour Claude,
This is a stunning macro!
The unusual point of view and lighting are just great, as well as all the fine details got.
The deep of field created here a suggestive image.
Felicitacions et merci du partage.
Mes amities,

Bonjour Claude,
Petite mouche se fait grande..belle image qui nous montre les moindres détails de ce minuscule insecte. J'aime aussi les fins reflets sur les ailes. Bel arrière-plan sombre.
Bonne soirée

Bonjour Claude
Très belle prise de cette mouche (il doit s'agir d'une mouche à fendant...)
excellente netteté et couleurs, très bon cadrage.
Amicalement Robi

Very nice shot with a beautiful composition. Colours and sharpness are great. Good to see the eyes. Well done.
Best wishes,
