merhaba my neighbour Catherine
this is very interesting fruit fly, as like a grasshopper with long ovipositor. you greatly captured it on white flowers and againts blurry greenish BG, with great sharp details, POV and composition. exposure and white balance also very nice. thanks for sharing. best wishes.

This is a beautiful specimen with strange but lovely features. I eye of this fruit fly is lovely and the colour has magnetism to it. I like the markings on the body as well as the patterns on the wings. The flower it is sitting on is also very pretty and I like the soft sheen it has on the petals. The fruit flies we have here are pests and my children was often bitten by them when they where youngsters. The bitemark would net develop in a "pit" like a huge pimple and the discomfort and pain in the area would then only be relieved if that "pit" came out. That of course was after lots of tears and very upset children. Thanks for shraring. Best regards.

Un peu en retard comme souvent. Une image étonnante de cette petite mouche aux yeux verts, une femelle avec un immense ovipositeur. J'avais aussi photographié ces mouches, mais n'avais pas vu cette caractéristique.
Une excellente gestion de la lumière, pas si simple ici sur ces fleurs blanches. Très beau!
