Breathtaking, superbly composed macro shot, with very good use of flash (colors even seem natural). Plenty of details on the insect and on the plant, excellent background blur - instead of more words I simply bookmark the pic as one of my favorites. Tfs this treasure.
Best regards, László

an very good macro shot with subup sharpness, detais and dof.
Nice dark bg.
I am searching for mistakes but I cant find it.
Maybe the light on the branche (white) but that's unfair.
Your picture is as impressive as beautiful. The superb sharpness reveals rich details and allows the viewer to get a complete overview about the insect's cheracteristics. You also have well managed the artificial light and the result is that the effects of the flash are almost inexistant.
A superb macro picture!

Wow George, this is superb macro work and a sure winner in many competirions. Fantastic pin sharp detail with good colours. Composition works very well and the BG makes the fly and perch really stand out well.

Another of your "spectacular" fly! ... Impeccable!
The details are quite significant, can be counted one by one the tiny hairs on the fly! I like very much the use of flash and how the colors have remained. Deserves to be named the cut, is a good decision have allowed comple whole view of the inflorescence where the fly is posed.
You do see flies, a pleasure!

Excellent picture of this tiny Hoverfly which you show here in a fine composition and strong colors. The flash obviously helps to bring out every single detail. I also like the fine grey background which gives an ideal contrast to the plant and the fly. Well done again!
Have a nice weekend
Are you make Japan glue? Hover Flies is very flattened.

Your images are extraordinary sharp, great photography bro. Love all your post.
Good morning George,
A nice macro showing in detail the features from a lateral POV. The colours and lighting are superb with good use of flash without producing a 'night-time effect' for this day-flying insect and the composition is excellent.
Maybe this is a little over-sharpened, the hairs appearing too much white, but that is a small point!
Thanks and have a good Sunday,
Excelente acercamiento George con un preciso y buen manejo de la luz.
Bien captados los detalles y unos colores preciosos y naturales.
Un saludo desde Espańa y buena semana: Josep Ignasi.
