Hi Nikos,the first pic of the new year,the sun is back and springtime too,a beautiful and top quality macro of this diptera,bright colors and fine details in the best light,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Seen your work after a long time, Nikos.
Cute macro of this Fly on a leaf.

Hello 👋 Nikos,
Beautiful background 😊 ; perfect 👌 for such insect. Good details and colors.
In my humble opinion, composition doesn't look good. You left too much BLANK SPACE (hind portion). Very little space in front of the fly. A tight crop or giving space in front of the bird 🐦 could have been a better choice ☺. Tomorrow I'll show you a workshop.
Thanks for sharing your work with us 😊
