I like it!
Great shot of this drone-fly in flight. Not the easiest of tasks to accomplish and you did excellently. The BG is amazing for this type of shot as you obviously do not have much time to consider or to set up for the BG while chasing after a flying insect with a camera in front of your eye.
The composition is very good and the DOF is fine.
Well done and TFS.
Wow! Well captured!Both images that you have shared with us of this fly are quite extraordinary.I salute your patience and your ability to capture a clear image of such a tiny moving object.Lovely detail....well done.

Very nice action shot! Good timing, great POV and details.
Lovely shot, great camera craft to capture this I think. Nice detail and even with f/11 your close proximity has defocused the background perfectly. Excellent work!

Bravooooo Emma pour ce superbe cliché !!
Wowwww, le vol de la bêbête a été capturé excellemment.
Photo en tout point de vue magnifique où toutes ces couleurs reposantes viennent nous carasser tendrement l'oeil.
It's perfect ! Congratulations et Merci du partage !
What you need to do to make a photo. Focus...lean back and snap. As Loot mentioned, I am amazed by the b/g. The color work perfectly with such a small insect.
So what can we expect with hunny away from home ;-)

Great inflight..Sharp detail and good light.
These are even smaller than a bee, so the degree of difficulty is greater..
Nice work and TFS!

Great catch. You must have burnt through a few CF cards trying to catch this...well I would. NIce composition and the OFF BG works really well in isolating the subject.

I have an almost identical photo posted here and I used the exact same technique as you - keep focussed in one area and the fly will eventually fly into focus. They tend to choose the same spot over and over again for some reason. I found this spot and kept focused on it and got a few shots. It's still quite difficult to get perfect focus, though.
I know how difficult it is, so well done.

I like this shot a lot. Composition is great and the Drone fly is sharp. I thing the Green background blur helps alianate the Drone fly as well giving it more attention. Its hard for me to get one of these guys sharp sitting still much less flying through the air. Very nice capture.

Bonita imagen Emma... una gran captura en vuelo con nitidez y contraste con un fondo suave y apropiado.
Tal vez la luz disponible no ayudó para resaltar los detalles del insecto, pero esto, no desmerece la calidad de la presentación.
Gracias por compartirla con nosotros.
Nice image Emma... a great capture in flight with clarity and contrast with a soft and appropriate background.
Perhaps the available light didn't help to stand out the details of the insect, but this, non be unworthy of the quality of the presentation.
Thank you for sharing with us.
