This little flower fly was busily wandering around the flowers. It is possibly a member of Syrphidae.

Hi Ali,

Well composed, good focus for this insect and nice total color combination!
You're capturing well this macro from a good angle and suppressing the noise of the background, I think.
And, slight shadow of petals draws out a good effect for the whole.


Selamlar ali bey,
çiçek mükemmel, makro olarak böcekte harika olmuş,
elinize sağlık.

Bonito trabajo Ali. Creo que el insecto estaba moviéndose y eso hace que no lo captaras con más nitidez si cabe. Los colores muy buenos.
Un saludo: Josep Ignasi.

Merhaba Ali,
a very interesting capture of this scenery. I like the intense image of the yellow and good sharpness of the insect. i like the rich green background too that enhances the beauty and sharpness of the overall composition.


Excellent picture. It is indeed a syrphidae, Syritta pipiens.
