Hi Laurens. What every it is you have taken a fine close up. With good detail. i can see the little hairs on the body. It has large green eyes. Your use of the light has given bright colours. I like the yellows of the flower and BG. well taken TFS.

Have a nice weekend.

Hello Laurens
the centered focusing on the Tabanidae is perfect. Excellent the composition of colors that give a great contrast between the little insect and the vivid yellow flower with fine details and optimal light management.

Hallo Lou,
Pracht foto! Deze gaat hoge ogen gooien. De kleuren zijn schitterend, ook in de ondergrond en achtergrond. De scherpte is fantastisch. Vooral de plaats waarvandaan deze foto gemaakt is, is erg goed. Uit je noot begrijp ik dat je ook nog in het zwembad bent geweest. Ik dacht dat je alleen maar met je fototoestel had rongelopen :-)

Hello Lou,
Yes this looks like a species of Tabanid, or horse fly and as the eyes meet and you took this on a flower, i would say that this one is a none-blood-sucking male, the females suck blood.
Both images are well taken with excellent, colours sharpness and lighting.
TFS this interesting post,
Have a good weekend,

Ciao Laurens. Winner POV here. You've perfectly exalted warm tone by an amazing light. Intrigants green reflction on eyes. Stunning details and intrigant BG.

Hello Lou,
Very colorful and striking picture of this green-eyed fly. Excellent visual impact produced by this special color-combination. We have also flies with big green eyes in my region, but I think that there are not of the same species. Anyway Ivan told you that only females suck blood!!
Very well done.
Have a nice weekend

No conozco la especie Laurens, pero reconozco que es un precioso trabajo, primero de acercamiento y luego del acertado tratamiento de los colores. Sacando también un buen partido a esa lente de 90 mm.
Abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

This is avery good macro with details and colors, love the fussiness all around the subject and its nice to see it feeding on the pollen as well

hello Laurens
exceptional macro very good photo output!
TFS thanks for sharing
