Hello Chi,
a really unique species which you nicely presented against the uniformly coloured background.
Focus is precise but I wished a broader depth of field.
Thank you for introducing this insect.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Chi,
It's one of the most unusually coloured flies I've ever seen. The contrast between head and rest of the body is killing. Also thanks for the informative note.
Best greetings & TFS!

Hi Chi Liu,
Outstanding macro shot of this Blowfly with amazing clarity and colours. The yellow head and the huge chocolate eyes look gorgeous. Great handling of lighting too. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Thanks for sharing this fine image.

Witaj,
mucha robi wrażenie dwóch różnych istot połączonych w całość - tułów to jedna a głowa druga. Podoba mi się POV i kompozycja zdjęcia; dobre, wysycone kolory i światło je podkreślające.
TFS and regards
