Well done, with thé dark BG and very subtle colors. Too bad the flowers were slightly past their prime, perhaps. Do You have Salvia pratense overthere ?
Wonderful subject, and great picture with lots of details. The spider is probably Thomisus daradioides. And yes, the bee had been dead for a while, because the spider always catches it by the back of the neck first, killing it instantly. It then starts sucking the fluids there, only changing the location of the bite after a while...
Excellente scène, j'admire entre autre la profondeur de champ. L'asilidae est, je pense, Dioctria rufipes. La proie est un ichneumonidae, mais ils sont si nombreux et variés que je ne me hasarderai même pas à proposer une sous-famille!
I agree with other commenters that the image has a lot of potential (besides being already quite good as is). I tried a bit of workshop on it, in the direction of noise suppression in the BG and some enhancement of the bird's presence. Hope you don't mind my tinkering !
Wonderful eye contact with your subject ! A splendid picture.
I agree that a note would make it even better.
I just love this action shot. All the rest has been written already ;°)
Impressive macro. It is likely a male Polistes dominula.
Very nice close-up. It is Rhingia campestris, a syrphidae.
A splendid butterfly indeed. The light is very pleasing, with just a touch of overexposure.
Good depth of field. Too bad the BG is a little cluttered on the right and there is a stem in front of the right wing's end.
Overall a very nice picture of a beautiful insect.
Superb picture, but I don't think it is Astata. Perhaps a pompilidae, I'd say.
