Eh qui ce ne sono quattro, anzi 3+1 che l'ultimo in fondo non se la passa mica bene, solo per augurarvi un magnifico 2010 e per ringraziarvi della pazienza con cui voi esperti avete sopportato un ignorante come me e per i tanti aiuti che mi avete dato ad identificare le mie bestiolette, in questa il ragno è il Tomiside Synaema globosum, il poveretto è un Imenottero Calcidoideo, probabilmente un Eulofide
Ciao a tutti

Hallo Silvio
What a delightful and most colourful image filled with such a variety of insects to look at and appreciate. The colours in the scene compliment each other so well, and the fine details of the insects are well seen and displayed. I especially like the black and yellow spider. A striking and vibrant image to end 2009 and start 2010. Thanks for sharing. I wish you and your family the all of the best, which you so well deserve. May you have a wonderful photographic year in 2010. Best regards.

Ciao Silvio! Amazing poppy, wonderful insect. Superb shot. Happy New Year!

Ciao Silvio,,
auguri in rosso, come da più moderna tradizione, come hai notato ho usato anch'io il rosso, ma con bollicine per astemi, ... certo hai scelto una cattura multipla per poter far sfoggio di nomi roboanti ...., ottima definizione e bellissimi colori luminosi, eccellenti punto di ripresa e profondità di campo, una piacevole composizione di buon augurio
Tanti Auguri di Buon Anno anche a te e ai tuoi familiari
Ciao Maurizio

ciao my friend Silvio,
a wonderful colorful photo scene for this day!
Wish you all the best for the new year, with many many photos!
best regards

Thanks and best wishes for the New Year!

Bonjour Silvio,
Un coquelicot qui a les faveurs de nombre d'insectes, dont tu connais même le nom (bravo!) Vie et mort sur cette fleur luminuese, un bon choix en cette fin d'année, pour nous rappeler que les deux existent côte à côte.
Un grand merci de tes voeux!
Bon passage à 2010.

Hi Silvio

Ha-ha-ha, so this little flower held a secret which was not well seen on the thumbnail.
I saw the black speckles on the flower, but obviously couldn't make out exactly what it
might be so just as with me a pleasant surprise awaits the viewer when opening the
file. So, 4 species in one. This little red flower certainly created a beehive of activity.
Well spotted and captured with excellent details and lovely colours.

To you and your loved ones I wish a wonderful, healthy, and a prosperous 2010.

Well done MF and TFS.

I wish you a happy, healthy and successful new year 2010!

A marvelous shot to end the year. It's not surprising that so many insects are attracted to this beautiful flower. Colors are magnificent and the details are excellent. I love that little spider!

ciao Silvio
what a beautiful shot of this poppy with a lot of visitors, each insect is very sharp
wonderful colors and lighting, great POV and DOF
a great picture to finish the year
Have a good night

caro amico
How can you say you are an ignorante!?! You are both clever and charming, and you are a wonderful photographer!

I wonder if you personally have placed the insects with so much flair to give company to the wasp? :-))

I read, many wasps lay an egg into the nest of a solitary wasp (like a cuckoo), while the owner is away gathering food. The larva delays development until the host's larva has eaten the stored food, and then it eats the adopted brothers and sisters...

The flower's colour is truly flamboyant, like a beautiful woman in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milano.

Best Wishes,
Buona Notte,
Ciao Ingrid
