This is certainly a macro fly!
Excellent work my friend ... there are good settings, and your talent to select the correct optical parameters. I like the results you get with the fill-in flash.
I'm surprised the 1/80s exposure, has really made a very balanced picture with these settings.
Equilateral Good composition, placing the insect in a very good point.
Greetings, thanks for sharing, I hope you have a good weekend.

You are obsessed, my friend.... Hahah... 800 pics!
But your efforts paid off. This is a wonderful shot of this hoverfly.
A very interesting POV.
The luminosity on the subject is amazing, really bringing out the beautiful colors on this insect that most people would not pay too much attention to.
Great macro with excellent details.
TFS. : )

A great macro with excellent clarity and emphasise on the eyes and the hairy chest area. The colours on both the hoverfly and the flower are warm and very inviting. I like the web thread on the right hand side of the frame, and the shine captured on the wings. Thanks for sharing and best regards.

It is really excellent macro work. I like all components of photo skill. First of all it is very attractive POV and composition of the shot. Second is great sharpness and details. You managed to reflect and show tiniest sweet details as hair on the body and head and eyes pattern. I also like wonderful presentation of the flower and superb colourful smooth BG. Well done and kind regards.
P.S. I have not free time almost. However, sometimes I visit TN for watching only.
