[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I would really appreciate your comments about the photos that I post. I think all photos could be better. I will be really thankful if you can comment more accurately how can I improve my shots.

Thanks again for all your criticism.

The most of photos that I show here are taken on hilltops to species with hilltopping behaviour. Some "rare" species are easily founded in those places.

Hill-topping is a mate-location behaviour seen in many insects including butterflies, dragonflies, wasps beetles and flies. Whitin Diptera, some species of Tachinidae and Syrphidae show strong hilltopping behaviour.

Hi Carlos,
This is my first visit to your gallery i think.
Superb macro, fine details and with lovely colours.I like the PoV you have used here.
TFS & cheers

Hello Carlos,
There's not much to improve in this shot :)
It is perfect as it is really.
Composition is great,exposure and colour are very good. Excellent DOF showing great detail from the eyes right down to the feet,and the hairy bottom.
A very good macro indeed!
Just a bit more of a note about the fly itself will make it the perfect post.
Great job,well done.

Hola Carlos

impressiva nitidez ao longo de todo o corpo da mosca. e que nitidez! pena que a posição da mosca não seja o seu melhor angulo, mas não é fácil captar estes insetos ageis e rapidos..

parabéns pela foto e TFS


There was a red one, this time is yellow :) These flies look really orginal and interesting, also this one. I like sharpness and very nice details. Maybe point of view could be a little different (more profile or more from above), but even now I like it :)
Best greetings,
