perfect capture of this real vampire!
great colors, as the sharpness and a perfect light that improves the objects and made visible many and stunning details of the insects.
Anghel, this is the best action shot I have ever seen on TN and I am being honest about it.
'The Kiss of Death' comes as another caption to my mind, even though your 'Vampire' is also perfect.
The eyes of the two flies are totally different. The yellow one, the apparent killer, has the eyes of a normal Fly. The blue one, on the other hand, has bulbous round eyes bulging out in the picture, as if in the throes of death.
Nature reveals certain secrets which are hard to believe and your picture portrays that assertion.
The image is technically superb with tremendous focus, magnificent details and life-like natural colours.
You deserve to be congratulated for this outstanding work.

Aceasta este o noua fotografie cu o rezolutie si calritate excelente. DOF-ul foarte bine ales face ca ambele insecte sa poata fi clar vazute. De asemenea culorile sunt foarte bine reproduse.
THF si toate cele bune,

As shot taken in Romania it must be related to vampires :-) Agree with Ram - it is one of best action shots I've ever seen and first one with this yellow fly. It looks really scary, especially after reading your note about smaller fly still alive. Quality is superb.

This one is a superb shot. Mating flies I have seen, but not this kind of picture. And also this is the first time I am seeing a yellow Dung Fly. You have recorded the moment with excellent sharpness and details. Good perspective that shows the "kiss of death", as Ram Sir puts it.:)
Excellent use of ring flash.
TFS & Regards,

Very impressive closeup. Extrem sharpness, high magnification, perfect exposure including flash fill. Close-up photography seems to have no secrets for you. Congratulation for this nice work.
