robberflies in side-view always look impressive, in particular when shown with high sharpness
as in your picture. Nice details. Unusual colour contrast. In most cases, robberflies rest on thin halms
and not on colourful roses.
Best wishes, Peter

A very good macro study of this robberfly Joe, the wing over the abdomen are almost invisible, but the rest in fine detail indeed! These pests sometimes attack humans and their bite is painful.

Two colours in this close-up; I like the combination.
The Robberfly is overall sharp. Nicely done composition.
Cool macro of this robberfly - good detail of the hairs etc. The flower (Hydrangea?) sets it off nicely.

A robber fly on a Valentines Day colour...mixed messages....true and beautiful colours while the hunchback of Notre Dame sits atop...How contradictory... sometimes this works but in strange ways...it certainly is a non sequitur .. LOL..bill Gates software doest know the Latin...why am I not surprised:-)

I told you you work magic. If I were to move that tricycle the fly would have disappeared. With you in charge it found a setting making it look like a princess on the pink flower. I love the side view, the excellent details and the wonderful colors and shadings.

spettacolare macro, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione "drammatica" con BG rosso del fiore, straordinaria definizione dei dettagli dell'insetto, perfetta esposizione con il flash e ottima resa dei colori.

Cuando la vi en la imagen pequeña, pensaba que el insecto estaba posando entre telas :-))
Buena luz y trabajo con el color así como la disposición del insecto.

Wnderfull detailed shot Joe.
I don't know how you managed to move it.
Our Robberflies take off if you get within a metre of them. Its really hard to get close enough to even get a shot at all.
You've done an amazing job with this one.
