A rather commonplace subject, treated with originality. The dew drops make it very special, and the (?morning) light is attractive, blending the colors into an overall blueish cast.
Perfect in terms of focus and an ideal BG.
I have noticed that flies do not get many points anymore on TN - it used to be different at the beginning, but...
Anyway, very well done.

Very good macro, great sharpness, great job!
A great macro, with super sharp details and focus. I like the water droplets on the robberfly, as well the vertical position captured of the body a lot. Great composition and pleasing point of view. Thanks for sharing.
