[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I hope, everybody has a good start into the new week.
On this monday I'd like to show you a little hoverfly - fresh from the garden - she likes to nibble at the orange lily.
It's my little Marmelade-fly - a Episyrphus balteatus.
She imitates a wasp to be protected - this character is also called Mimicry.

So have a nice week everybody, bye.

Hi Sabine,

Excellent shot, POV, DOF and lighting. Beautiful work.


fabuleux sabine
cette mouche etait en vol stationnaire je suppose!
tres reussie.

Excellent flight shot!
A bit too colour saturated for my personal taste, but the lights, details, POV, everything is great. You produce very good fight shots, amazed with the relative low speed used. TFS you two :)
Regards, Felipe.

Hello Sabine,
This is a magnificent shot. I love it.
The detail is razor sharp, and the colours are just wonderful. exposure and lighting are good. Great POV and composition.

Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Hi Wishnu.
I am very glad to see this picture. I have a very colorful macro picture of orange lily. I have some good pictures with Marmelade-fly. But you have both that, and another simultaneously, at once. Great colours, POV and DOF, sharpness of Marmelade-fly are amazing. Perfect done.

Hi Sabine,
a beautiful shot with lovelu colour tones, the flower matching the fly well.
Good details and well composed.
Well done, my friend.
