Hello Paul,
Great four Macro-pictures of this hoverfly. It´s sharp and has great details.
I often have problems with photographing flys, bees or insects like that. The picture are often non-sharp.
But you did it well.

That is an amazing presentation of an animal behaviour observed by few people. You did a great job capturing this sequence. Every shot is stunningly sharp with excellent POV.

Excellent sequence Paul... enough time ago I published also one with the cleaning of their back paws.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, sharpness, focus, color, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing.

Very nice and instructive presentation.
Greetings... Ricardo

Hi Paul,

What a lovely composition made up with a excellent collection of shots, the detail of each shot is so clean and sharp, I love all the pollen, no wonder he was trying to clean it off, the colours are perfect with nice a BG.

TFS Hilary :o)
