Salut Leonid !
What a nice macro shot, with a superb fly.
I like the natural colors, and the drop of water on the little fly.
Good sharpness, excellent POV.
Well done

Hello Leonid,
Again an interesting insect-species. This fly has very beautiful wing-patterns, which I never had noticed. We have flies of this family too, looking a little different from your species. Perfect sharpness and blurred background, like always.
Thanks and best regards

I think you can improve your shapening technique. The details from your images can be boosted. Check out here a fantastic shapening technique in 2 steps using Adobe Photoshop:

Hello Leonid !
Great picture of this dew covered fly - as usual on your pictures, sharpness and details are excellent, as well as the colors, the composition, the POV and the BG. The droplets of water are amazing, they look like tiny and shining cristal jewels, it's really splendid. Very well done !

A superb image Leonid, a finely executed macro shot of a colourfully constructed fly covered with dewdrops, perfectly exposed with a crisp DOF choice. Good job indeed my friend!

Hi Leonid,
A lovely capture of this beautiful fly covered with morning dew. Superb sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

hello Leonid
good details
very nice composition
i love this
greeting lou

Hello Leonid,
Well done. Wet it is. You photographed the insect very well. For instance good sharpness, POV and DOF,...

Slendid photography. Focus and sharpness is super. Colour and detail captured and displayed is very eye-catching. It is actually a PPPP - Pretty, Perfect, Photographic Picture. It is worth much more than a smiley and I give you a round of applause. The "diamond" on the forehead makes this image super special, and the water droplets on the rest of the body rounds of this image to its best.
Thanks for sharing this awesome macro. The photography is tops.
Best regards.
