I have several "ugly" insects unclassified in my archives. I decided to publish this in TN, so that you appreciate them and you can see that "In venezuela not only have nice butterflies"... also would be able to do "the week of the ugly guys".

#1) ¿A pair of fruit flies?

-Shoted at the end of the afternoon, almost when falling the night.
-F/4.0, ISO 100, 1/400s. A combination that know and me ensures a good result with fast pictures fit to little light and with few options of doing severals shots.

Thanks for visit and view!

Hi Jesus. Different they are i not to sure about ugly . I have never seen anything like this with the large eyes. You have taken them with sharp focusing and fine detail. Along with natural colours. Good use of the flash in this one. They stand out well from the plain BG. I look foward to the others this week from you. Well done TFS.

Ola Jesus,

Excelente captura. Y tienes que dar las gracias por darnos la oportunidad de ver lo que los insectos existen en Venezuela.
Así que los europeos es algo nuevo para nosotros.
Saludos cordiales,

Hello Jesus!
This is amazing picture of amazing flies! Wonderful details and very special climat of photo. I especially like dark colours (picture is dramatic even if it presents mating behaviour not any dramatic moment ;>).
And moreover, thanks to this picture (but of course not only becase this one) I decided to add you to my favourite TN photographers :>
Greetings from Lodz

Hi Jesus,

Ugly? They are far from ugly in this wonderful macro. Those huge eyes are beautiful. Of course I have no idea what they may be but they are fascinating to look at. You captured a fine moment with wonderful colors and fantastic details. The background is perfect for this pair.

Hello Jesus,
Stunning close-up and love scene with nice details and composition. Excellent lighting!
TFS and G's,

Hola Jesús

Vaya insectos más feos y delgados, habra que alimentarlos.

Una imagen excelente, una macro muy bien tomada, y oportuna.

Un saludo Antonio

ciao Jesus!
uno straordinario accoppiamento di mosche della frutta,i dettagli e la strana fisionomia rendono devvero piacevole questa macro...

un saluto sERGIO

Poco que decir... y mucho que observar y aprender. Gran belleza en los colores por lo bien que los capturaste con esa soberbia luz. Una foto "extra" para los que aqui publicamos, llena de delicadeza a pesar de lo feos que nos dicen que son.
Aquí en España la mosca de la fruta es Ceratitis capitata en el melocotonero, Dacus oleae en olivo y en cerezo otra de la que no recuerdo ahora; lo se porque me dedico a los insumos :-)

Un abrazo y enhorabuena por este trabajo tan especial: J. Ignasi.

Ciao Jesus, splendida macro di ottima qualità, bellissimi gli occhi rossi di queste mosche della frotta, fantastica la scena d'accoppiamento, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
