[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Le syrphe manche à air est un diptère (ses deux ailes arrières sont remplacées par deux batonnêts ridicules).
Comme tous les syrphidés, c'est un roi du vol stationnaire, les ailes battant si vite qu'on ne les voit plus.
Il fréquente les ombellifères, où il se nourit de nectar.
On reconnait cette espèce au dessin abdominal :
Toutes les bandes jaunes sont entières, sauf la plus proche du thorax.
Les deux tâches ainsi formées sont arrondies.
Sur ce cliché, il s'agit d'un mâle : les deux yeux se touchent.

Image recadrée, niveaux auto, saturation légèrement augmentée, accentuation et Neat image.

I'll just continue with the WOW Sebastien, if you don't mind ;) This is just amazing. What a beauty, incredible sharp and the colours are fabiolus. I tink everything i have to say about this picture will come with a superlative ;)

Not much to say about this one Sebastien - except that everything is just superb.

Extra special, great close-up. Really stunning work. Thanx for sharing.

C'est effectivement toujours impressiant de voir le vol stationnaire de ces bêtes là. Ici, la macro est d'une qualité remarquable et la profondeur de champ est impeccable. Bravo!

This is a brilliant macro Sebastien! I know, it's a long time ago since you've uploaded it but I just had to critique it. It's marvelous. The details are razordharp, the colors are perfect and the composition is excellent. I like the BG also. Very well done and TFS!

Pieter

A very special shot of this insect busy at work. The colors and textures of the flowers provide a lovely backdrop to the bee. The wings are so clear and sharp. Just lovely!

Really a beautiful macro! The colours are so soft and the image is so definited! I like very much!
Congratulation Tom
