Welcome to TN, Yann - nice first entry with this detailed macro in a good color setting, and a nice depth of field. I'm not an insect expert but I'm positive that some of the other members will be able to identify this species ;-)

Bonjour Yann & Welcome on TN!
As I already told you on TE, it's such a wonderful clear and sharp, attractive macro. Really well done!

Incroyables ces détails. Bravo ! Je trouve le cadrage et la PdC impeccables.

Interesting composition, good focus, maybe less DOF would have given a more powerfull picture, IMHO

Very nice one Yann,
Good capture, good macro, good sharp, good dof, very good job. Welcome on TN. Maybe a little more note.

Yann, it's a hoverfly and the ID is Volucella pellucens.

Nice picture, great detail and sharp crisp image.

Well done.

Points tomorrow

Welcome on TN Yann. Very nice first post of this hoverfly (Volucella pellucens). I like the composition and dof is spot on. though I have to say it is a little dark which means loss of details. Apart from that it is a very nice picture.
