[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Still Episyrphus balteatus in our orchard. This issue takes a sunny day to feed on pollen from flowers of Rosmarinus officinale. Few flies may feed on plant pollen. Most use the nectar.

Taken at 50 cm. with approximately 200 micro nikkor f4 with flash to manual 1/1. Cropped and slightly focused LR3.

Thank you.

Hello Roberto,
Excellent sharp detailed macro in beautiful colours and a fantastic composition. Taken from a very good POV.

Buen macro Roberto! y este es muy difícil de conseguir pues tanto la mosca como la flor son muy pequeñas. Enhorabuena.
