[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo today in a rose garden. I liked this shot because the bigger fly seems to be calling to the smaller one as a mother would call to her child. Any help on identification of species would be greatly appreciated so I can write a proper note!!

Hello Alli!
Excellent shot.Details on white,POV,framing,blurred BG,3D effect,sharpness and composition are wonderful.TFS....:-)

Nice capture, Alli!

Details of the flies great, we can even see the eyes of the small one.

Nice BG and color, POV and lighting are very good.

Well done on this composition, thank you for sharing it with us.

Do you think maybe the little one might be a snack opportunity? :-) Sorry, couldn't resist.

Best greetings,

Hi Alli,
POV and lighting are very good
Excellent shot.
wonderful flower and the two flies with very good sharpness.

Hi Alli,
That's a scary title (another private explanation!!!!)
This is really well captured. The exposure on the whites is perfect. Excellent DOF to get the details sharp on both flies.
Colours, POV and framing are great.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.
Can't help with the ID....if it was a beer spill I could ID that!!!

I like the little baby fly, especially his nose.
What a good title! It is very cute. I asked my mother-former biology student about the name of the fly, but she did not know, probably it's just a fly...
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!
