kelebekler, çiçeklerden derken başka bir konu. güzel bir makro olmuş, Özgür. eline sağlık. Diptera takımından olduğu kesin ama tür konusunda birşey diyemeyeceğim.
iyi geceler, selamlar.

Merhaba Özgür Bey, puanımı bitirdim maalesef ama türü tanıdığım için hem de önem vermeyeceğinizi düşündüğümden, hemen yazmak istedim. Tephritidae ailesinden Akdeniz Meyve Sineği (Mediterranean Fruit Fly), Ceratitis capitata bu. Erkeklerinin başında ucu topuz kılsı tipik yapılar ile karakterize. Zaten tür adı da ondan geliyor.
Elinize sağlık. İyi geceler.


Dear Ozgur
This Insect is very interesting, because the phylum Arthropoda is huge in terms of both numbers of species and in terms of numbers of individuals. They have diversified to live in every habitat imaginable, from the tropics to the poles, from the bottom of the oceans to the tops of mountains, both underground and inside other animals and plants, where ever you look Arthropods are ubiquitous. Most of the invertebrates you encounter during your life will be Arthropods, in fact if you only noticed them you would realise that most of the living things you encounter in your life are Arthropods. With an amazing 1 million named species (and estimates of total species numbers rising to 30 million) the Arthropods represent over 80% of the Animal Kingdom and probably at least half of all living organisms.

I therefore add your image to my Theme "Animal Behaviour".

Your focus and exposure are very good, I have just one suggestion. You could improve your photo - if you cropped it a bit - and observe the Rule of Thirds.

A upload to your workshop an example to demonstrate, what I mean.

Have a nice evening
Kind regards
