Bonjour Claude,
C'est une macro très impressionnante, wow! Les détails sont excellents et que dire de ce timing avec la goutte, on y voit même un reflet. Bravo, c'est vraiment impressionnant!

This is a great capture. A short note on the insect would have been useful though. Is this image cropped or 100% view?

Hello Claude,
a very detail-rich picture. Surface structure of the compound eyes and of the antennae
is nicely presented with superb sharpness. This is also true for the fluid droplet.
The ring-flash has been well applied.
Best wishes,

Hello Claude,

You have made a very good close-up of the fly. The image is very sharp showing great details of fly's head. You have cought very well the image of the wter drop the fly is drinking and the light reflected in it makes the image dinamic.

Thank you for sharing,

Ciao Claude,
spettacolare macro, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione, impressionante la definzione dei dettagli ed un ingrandimento di qualità simile ad un microscopio a scansione,
molto belli i colori e il perfetto utilizzo del flash anulare.

Bonjour Claude,

Superbes détails et couleurs ! Il y a un article sur le site "diptera info" pour tenter d'expliquer ce phénomène.
Bonne journée,

Now that is an unusual pic. Great view of the eyes. I like the composition.
Best wishes,

Je suis ébahie par tous les détails, les poils, le pollen, la goutte d'eau, l'antenne qui ressemble à une minuscule plume. Merci Claude, toujours des photos magnifiques,


Hello Claude,

Woooww! What an incredible image, Claude!
That sparkling droplet is beautiful.
Very good detail and clarity.
Excellent composition.
It doesn't seem like you used flash at all, the light is so diffused and soft.
Stunning work!

Bonjour Claude,
A superb close macro of the head of a fly taken from a fine POV with immaculate sharpness and lighting, to show fantastic details, including the drop of liquid from its proboscis. Judging by the grains of pollen this species mus be a flower visitor.
Merci pour le partage,
Bonne journée
