Very good macro Jaap.
I took some pictureof a insect today and it looks like this one. But it was a friendly ,Bee-Fly, Bombylius major.
Good details, compostion and colours.
Well done, my friend.

I dont know what this is, but I would be afraid of it. Your usual nice quality is shown here again. Regards.

Very nice close up of this Bombylius sp. probably major as "ellis49' suggests. It is perfectly harmless, unless you are a solitary bee grub. The longue tongue is used exclusively to sap nectar, nothing like a horse fly here!
Very well done

I got my Rainbow on Friday. Then took a few pictures of it and gave it away. What did you fish for?
No deer flies or balck flies out yet, soon though.
Excelent capture of this fly. Well done on the composition and details.

Wat 'n ingeboude swaard - mens sal nie graag met hom wil swaarde kruis nie. PerdevlieŰ is peste, ek ken hulle baie goed uit my kinderdae. Jy slaan hom nie sommer dood nie. Die beste manier is om hom the vang en sy kop af te knyp.
Mooi foto, goeie details. Knap gedaan.

Great capture of this Bombulus major Jaap. Very good dof to show the details in the wing and the "fur". Colours are spot on. Pity the left wing dropped totally out of focus - but you cann't have it all;-).

Hello Jaap, very nice shot. I'm with Gert regarding the ID. I saw one of these yesterday and although I got a couple of shots they weren't as good as this. Very nice capture. Good shot.

Perfect focus and details. Very good composition and POV. Maybe just frame a bit to tight, but still almost perfect.
I like it very much.
Very well done!

Inderdaad uw nieuwe camera doet het goed, maar ik ben zeker dat u straks zeker nog mooiere beelden maakt, hier had u een beetje pech met de achtergrond, waardoor de bruine kleuren in elkaar lopen, maar keuzen is niet mogelijk bij dergelijke moment opnames, maar ik vind dit wel zeer mooi, ik kende dit kleine diertje ook niet!
Iets gevangen bij het vissen?
