A couple of flies enjoying a free summer meal
Not sure if these are the same specie or not (they do seem to be holding hands)

Taken with +4 close-up lens
Cropped, Levels, sharpened
I know DOF is not perfect, maybe next time..

Well, holding hands maybe, or it could be a scrum :)

This sharpness and detail is very good, but I also like the composition.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Nice and interesting capture Shir, focus is a little soft, composition is good but could be better. 5/10 TFS

What a beautiful and interesting composition for the 2 flies and the little spider. Colors, light, DOF, details and sharpness are very good ! Thanks for sharing Shir.

I see only of the beauty in your photo with both insects on the same flower, the sharpness of details, colours, composition. Good shot for me.

Je ne vois que de la beauté dans votre photo avec les deux insectes sur la même fleur, la finesse des détails, les couleurs, la composition. Belle prise pour moi.

Shir, do you think these guys - oops FLIES - are having a tête-à-tête? Or is there a "pecking" order?

What is the flower they are on? Is it knapweed?

So long, ;j.
