Hallo Leonid
A stunning macro of this "assumed" hoverfly. All parts are really sharp, and details is really impressive. Clarity of the body hairs is fantastic. Very interesting creature to look at. The size of the eyes is really impressive and very clearly seen and the different colours on the paws is beautiful. Great focus and sharpness in this image. Thanks for sharing. Like all your others it was a sheer pleasure to look at.
Kind regards

Ciao Leonid, superb macro for a beautiful bee, splendid sharpness and fantastic details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Leonid.
Once more precise macro shot. Hair of the insect and all other attractive details and features are reflected perfectly. Every tiny detail is visible greatly. I also like soft lighting and very nice smooth green BG. Well done and kind regards.
