Hello Mikael,
your picture shows this hoverfly couple very clear and sharp with excellent contrast against the smooth background. Also the composition is very attractive.
Best wishes, Peter

Tjena Micke.
en mycket fin bild av ett parande par, det är nog första gången som jag ser ett par blomflugor göka.;-)
Mycket fint skärpedjup, de syns mycket väl emot den fina bakgrunden och skärpa är bra. Vackra mustiga färger.
Snyggt jobbat.

Villan i morgon bitti ?? Ska till farbror doktorn med näven på eftermiddagen.

Hi Tamrock,
Magnificent capture of this hoverflyes!
I like so much the clear and sharp details of this image.
The baklight creates a very interesting effect like a bright silhouette on the subjects.
Excellent the light manage and exposition used.
Great DOF and the soft background got.
I like so much the vertical composition made.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

An artistic presentation, Mikael. I like the glowing points of light around the edges of the subjects, lending them an aura of special beauty.
An unorthodox image and excellent by virtue of it.
Best regards.

Very sharp image, Mikael.

Hi Mikael,
nice backlighting which shows the hairs on the bodies well. The situation as well as the composition is really great. For a handheld image fine sharpness.
