Anche questa fa parte della meritoria operazioone di riciclaggio rifiuti, ho già postato più volte questa sirfide, questa è forse quella col fuoco migliore e poi mi piace il giallo.
Hi Bob your are right I like Yellow:)

Hi Silvio,

Very sharp picture with only Focal Length of 50 mm. Good POV and colorful insect.

Joli duo bien net.
Bonne journée.

There is a pleasing softness but not too soft. Sometimes an image can be too sharp and it detracts unless you know how to do that sort of sharp and still interesting think as Sumon does. That is something I may never get down that good...Always enjoyable seeing your yellow images:-) I think Italy must be home of yellow! Oh yes and scarlet as well for all the Cardinals which live there:-)

Hello Silvio,
You have always delivered your stuff brilliantly for us to see, thanks. I like this one at the edge of superb yellow flower. The insect is in crystal details and contrasting very well with the flower. Very well managed depth and lighting too. Well done Silvio, I like it.

Hi Silvio,
Beautiful photo and nice colors.
Best regards,

Hello Silvio,
Colourful image. Good composition.
Well done

Hi Silvio,
Wonderful shot with such bright colours and sharp details. Superb lighting and exposure and the OOF BG highlights the subjects perfectly. I like your top POV here to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Atractiva coposición Silvio con una flor compuesta muy bella y espectacular.

Hello Silvio,
What a lovely shot of the Hoverfly on a very pretty flower. Both are sharply in focus and details are impessive. Nice soft backgorund too. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Altro che Agatha Christie, caro Silvio: sei tu il vero re del giallo!
A parte gli scherzi, riesci davvero a riprodurre in maniera naturale un colore veramente ostico per i macrofotografi!
L'Episyrphus balteatus poi, è la ciliegina sulla torta.
Alla prossima e grazie di tutto,

The Hoverfly on the yellow flower is wonderful. The details of the insect are amazing - wings and body are outstanding. Wonderful colors and background.

A spectacular and vibrant close up of this Hoverfly. Really lovely portrait. You have captured this hoverflies well and the detail is very good. I like the striped body and the pinkish blue shiny wings. The yellow flower adds a sunny atmosphere to this special photo. Like always this is a pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing and well done.
