[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in the afternoon around a lake in Northern part of Istanbul on the coat of Black Sea. I was quite suprised of how many I found there. Them and Damselflies were everywhere. I started liking these creatures. One thing though. These were not photographer friendly as the ones I found in the city.

For those of you who didn't realize yet there are two flies there on top of each other. They have become one. And they were flying like that.

Hope you like it.

Hi Ahmet.
I know it is rather difficult to photograph this insect. Its legs are too long but you managed to create a perfect composed shot of these fliers. Bravo, excellent work. Diagonal composition containing whole images of these insects, wonderfully illuminated and coloured BG, excellent details of the flies are looked very nice. Excellent job and my compliments.

Merhaba Ahmet,
Mükemmel bir çalisma. Odak tam göze isabet etmis. Bayagi bir sabir isi olmali bu. Tebrikler.

Hi Ahmet,
Very interesting shot. Look-like it was not easy to do 'the job' for the insects when they have so many extra long legs. Very nicely captured. Neat and aesthetic image.

hi Ahmet,
belle image dans laquelle tout est mélé, l'accouplement est un vrai sport :)
Bon cadrage en diagonale, belle netteté.
