Robber Fly

Thanks Nagraj and Jacqueline (Noisette) for the ID!


Although it does seem something common I still don't know the name, so I'd appreciate some help on this!

Taken at ISO800 so some noise appears, sorry for that! :)

Hope you like it anyway!

Best regards,

Hi Andor,
it is not much noisy with my screen. very nice macro-shot for this fly. You nicely composed and framed. Focus, especially posterior side, very nice. Coloration and BG also very well. TFS, best wishes

Hi Andor,
Very good composition and colors, there is lack of sharpness, the body part mainly. This is one of the 'Robber Fly' please check wipipedia. tfs.

hello Andor

the two tones of green gives this shot a special luminosity, the robber fly is good focused, we can see so many details on it

Ciao Andor, I don't know id, sorry, fascinating diagonal composition with splendid colors and fantastic light, dood detaols and splendid blurry BG, not too much noise, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi dear Andor ,

Well captured
Kind regards

salut Andor,
je choisi celle-ci pour le bon travail sur la composition. Les matičres sont bien restituées par cette bonne netteté, la lumičre diffuse et les couleurs douces complčtent l'ensemble.


hi andor :)

Very nice macro shot of this robberfly. Composition looks great with the structures of the green leaf.
