Hello Fikret,
Fantastic sharp detailed photo of this moth in flight in splendid light and colours. Special background with the red spot. Taken from a very good POV in an excellent composition. A photo to be proud of.

This time you have posted a Hawk Moth hovering over a flower, Fikret, and it is a very good capture. Many of us try it but do not get as sharp an image as this one.
The dark BG goes well here and the composition is just adorable.

Merhaba Fikret,
Mükemmel bir görüntü değil kolayca fotoğrafı bir güve. O bir çekici uçak içi manevra içinde geçirdin. Üstün detay ve muhteşem doğal rengi. Bu-cekti var olmak sert bir fotoğraf üzerine geliştirmek. Exellent vurdu!

這蛾照的很美麗 在半空中被照到 不簡單的事
黑的背景更凸顯它的撲素 光線是使它和花瑰麗

Merhaba Fikret, great capture of very fast moth on beautiful flower, great contrast against dark BG, fantastic light, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Fikret,
What a perfect shot of Macroglossum stellatarum. It's already very difficult to have this insect in focus, but hoovering on a superb flower and with a red nimbus,it is a performance! Great shot, again!
Kind regards
