Hallo Sue
I am currently running a tight schedule and do not have time for a proper critique, but I could not let the opportunity pass to leave a few words at this striking golden and glowing image. It is very artistic and indeed sunny. It reminds me of summer. Thanks for sharing and although words are few, appreciation is plenty. Best regards.

oohhhh I like this one.
The color setting is great. the shot is well focussed. the composition is a tough one, i would have liked to see the fly less centered, but not sure how that would influence the overall pictures

Hello Sue
an incredible macro on this small hover fly with splendid details. Interesting also the particulars of the flower on which it is rested optimally in focusing.

Hi Sue
This is fantastic and very good catch....Lights colors details perfect....Very good focused...

Elegancia, originalidad y realismo. Un excelente trabajo.
