Main parts perfectly on focus,
delightfully rich colours,
a perfectly fitting background.
Just wonderful. Thank you!

Votre secret doit être super tout comme cette photo ! Quand je serai grand j'aimerais pouvoir arriver à faire cela ;-)
Compliments Didier pour ce 100ème cliché sur TN et merci pour le partage.

Hello Didier,
I thought you have some secret about these pictures. I guess nobody else has some many strange creatures captured in flight in his gallery as you do.
This is another quite strange one. Great colours and nice quality.
WELL DONE!

Hello Didier,
Excellent job with this inflight...
Well composed with sharp detail and nice color. I like the POV and BG as well..
I know your secret :)
Very well done.

Bonjour Didier,
J'aime beaucoup celle ci pour l'instant et les couleurs. Belle composition.
Bravo.
Hugo.

Bonjour Didier,
Photo incroyable d'un insecte en volant, j'ai vu qu'il est sa spécialité. Je m'imagine qu'il doit être difficile de prendre cette classe de photo et vous le faites très bien. Les couleurs et les détails sont très bons. La composition est belle et ce cadre aussi j'aime.
Félicitations et merci.

Good catch Didier, of this insect in full flight, or jumping like this. Your secret: Is he tied to a piece of string????
Well done,
Janice

Hi Didier.
Great moment capture,excellent shot.

Saludos...RICARDO.

Hi Didier,
this is an unusal and great in-flight shot with good details.
The shallow DOF is very good, the insect is well seen from the BG. The colours are nice.
Great work.

Belle photo de ce hanneton volant, belle prise comme les autres, bons détails,jolies couleurs et grande netteté. Amitiés Thomas
je reviens

My best regards from Lodz,
Radomir
