Merhaba Nuri,
çiçek güzel,scripta güzel,güzel bir macro,tebrikler..

Hi Nuri
Another beautiful macro. The flower's colour compliments the hoverfly very well. Fantastic focus and DOV. I really like the relationship (size) of overfly and flower. I find it a very nice balance.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hello Nuri,
Quite a remarkable capture in stunning clarity and perfect exposure. Composition couldn't be any finer and colors are well saturated yet natural. Nine generations in one year....now that's a lot of hoverflies. Awesome job!!

Hello Nuri,
a fantastic macro with great sharpness and colour.
the composition is awesome.
