Il s'agit de Volucella pellucens, femelle, appartenant à la famille des syrphes, Syrphidae. Très bonne exposition malgré le temps gris. Excellente netteté. Bonnes couleurs naturelles.

you achieved admirable sharpness at least at the frontal parts of the fly. The eyes look
amazing. Beautiful natural colours and a well composed picture, too.
Best wishes, Peter

I am very pressed for time but I could not pass this perfectly clear and beautiful image. Details are amazingly bright and the big brown eyes is really a great eye-catcher. I cannot find fault in your overall presentation. It was indeed a pleasure looking at this fly. Trust that your worries that kept you from the site is now in the past and that you will spoil us with more beautiful images to come.

una foto interesante. La luz , ténue, pero efectiva, creando un ambiente especial, real y sobre todo de gran naturalidad. Había visto esta especie en alguna ocasión, pero solamente en fotografía. Un bello trabajo.
Salutations de la Catalogne :-)

really good to see another post from you... I hope you will add more photos in the close future.
Very, very good macro of this Volucella Pellucens.
The soft-light has conserved every little detail.
Really sharp with great clarity.

Bzzzzz, it's nice to see one from you again my friend. I sincerely hope your worries will turn into laughter and joyful happiness.
Another lovely macro from your lens. The beauty of this little hoverfly is well presented by this image. Sharp details in the region of the face and the thorax gives one an excellent view of the finer intricacies of the design of this insect. Natural colours and good lighting makes it pleasing on the eye.
Well done MF and TFS.
PS. By the way (or as you perhaps already know), we will be leaving early tomorrow morning for our holiday. Of course we are going to the Kruger Park…where else? Take care and see you in 2½ weeks.

Despite I am too late I wish to comment this amazing but missed by me shot. First of all I like very impressive scene created by beautiful leaf, attractive water drops and beautiful hoverfly. I also like wonderful diagonal composition and impressive a bit upper POV. It is clear the details and sharpness are amazing and soft lighting is very pleasant and nice. Bravo. Perfect shot. My best wishes. I hope all is OK at you.
