Hello Peter,
Excellent macro image, beautiful details. The eye is a little dark but often we have to take what we can get. Great rich colours too, fantastic.

very nice.

Wonderful clear macro shot again Peter.
Love the details, colors and contrast.
Excellent work on sharpness, composition with the vertical line of the leaf and fly and exposure.
Very well done. TFS!!!

Have a great weekend, Harry

Hallo Peter,
beeindruckende Makro-Aufnahme dieser Schwebefliege.
Das Bild is so scharf, dass man sogar die feinen Haare auf ihrem Körper erkennen kann.
Bildaufbau und das Grün der Umgebung gefallen mir auch sehr gut.
