Guten Abend Peter,
Ein feiens Bild der kleinen Stiftschwebfliege, die ich immer als sehr reizvoll empfinde. Ein nicht einfacher Blickwinkel, aber der Fokus ist perfekt auf den Augen.
Schöner neutraler Hintergrund auch.
Wünsche einen schönen Abend
Herzlich grüüst

Hello Peter,

This a class macro of this hoverfly. The eye lens & flower top is in incredible detail & well enhanced by the fine & contrasting green bokeh. Very well taken & executed!
