[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Some hover-flies are beautiful of colour and often find it on plants with a lot of little flowers. Those little flowers have nectar as it where on flower lie, so that he by a glide can licks it up, with its short tongue. It is a delicacy for glides. The foods of glides exist from nectar and pollen. It is a pollen insect, this means that he can transmit, pollen and nectar, on same flower, and on another flower. As a result, these flowers are fertilised. She cannot pricks, because she has no sting. To glide plants it self by lying eggs. They laying the eggs in things such as mud, fattens, liquid manure and in corpses of large animals and shit. After a period of some days there Maggot’s arise from the eggs. The maggot of this hover-fly, also called rat tail, live in wet substance and with a little trunk they take breathe, to surface. There are rather what types of insects which are compared, with bees but if you have a good look, you will see the difference very well, however. There is a large difference between a bee and a hover-fly, in the way of life.

well I choose this one out my archive because the balance of the pov and the dof is so nice in this yellow composition. I hope you like it too.

Hoi Jaap,
Zie ik u niet op TE dan gelukkig wel op TN.
Er zullen vele mooie foto's in uw archief steken, inderdaad de POF en DOF zijn zeer goed, de bruine kleur van deze honig bij is mooi contraterend tegen de gele plantenbollen.
Uw nota is een halve boek, wel zeer leerrijk, ik ben iemand die daar aandacht aan besteed.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

Hello jaap!
Very nice close up from sunny days.Colors,lighting,
POV and framing are wonderful.

Hi Jaap,
I agree that the yellow color is eye popping! The composition and framing are excellent. The DOF is really what makes this shot. Nice detail on the bee and flower he is on. The falloff in the DOF to the OOF flowers in the backround is superb. Can't wait to see these again.

Hi Jaap, nice colourful shot. Good composition and lovely colours. The focus is a little bit soft on the head but not too bad.

The insect is not a bee, it's a hoverfly of the genus Eristalis most likely E. tenax but would need to see more to be certain.

Well done, good to see you posting again.

belles couleurs et bons details.le BGest bien aussi.

Hello Jaap, this is an incredibly powerful shot, so colourful!
I really like the chosen composition. The focus on the fly is quite soft, especially around the head, but it isn't too distracting.
Thanks for posting.

Very nice warm colors and well composed Jaap.
Excellent light & sharp detail with a great POV. Very well done.
My compliments :-)

Jaap, I have the feeling the shot could be a little bit sharper, but, anyway, this is a very nice capture.

I do enjoy colors, pov and contrast. Excellent composition too.

Hello mijn vriend Jaap,
Dit is een uitstekende macro. Excellent warm colours and very good sharp detail. Composition and POV are great also. Very well done. Dank.

Hello Jaap,
wonderful rich colours of late summer. Well composed arrangement. Very good details on the fly's abdomen and left wing, but the head seems to be just a little bit out of focus. A very pleasant, artistic close up. Thank you! Best regards, Peter

Je n'ai pas le loisir ces jours-ci d'écrire des commentaires ou des éloges dithyrambiques et panégyriques sur vos travaux.
Et j'ai encore moins le temps pour les traduire dans vote langue maternelle.
Mais je vous prie d'accepter sans ambages le maigrelet icône qu'on me permet de vous octroyer en récompense pour votre travail assidu, source de joies pour mon regard quelques fois ébloui.
Merci my friend Jaap.
