Hi Nikos,what a fantastic macro,the best dot of fire to take this fly with an impressive sharpness,a nice and colorful composition too,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Nikos,
Well captured this Hoverfly if we look at its color, sharpness and natural habitat. BG is also well. But subject is in heart of the frame and it doesn't look good here. You might get different composition easily to get rid from it, in my opinion.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Nikos,
Your hoverfly is shown in fantastic focus and displays beautiful markings and rich colors. It's body is elongated, inlike most hoverflies I see. Perfectly exposed and perched on an attractive flower.

Sharp details and wonderful colors make your pic outstanding
