[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Unidentified (any ideas?) specie of fly having some polen for lunch. It was in good shape although it's wing was broken.

I was using a +4 close-up for this one and happy with the result but I assume a real macro lens could give better results..

Hello Shir, nice shot. Good composition and well done on the exposure. The fly is a Tachinid fly, pretty hard to find a specific ID I think there are a few similar species.

tres reussie cette photo,de belles couleurs et d'excellents details.
good DOF.

Hi Shir,
Colorful shot.Excellent macro. Point of view, details, framing and colors are very well. Congratulations...

Hello Shir
I doubt a macro lens will provide much better results that I see here. Stopping the lens down gives you great DOF. Great color, sharpness and POV.

Bonjour Shir
Tu nous envoies une superbe belle prise de vue. Les couleurs et les détails sont très réussis. le BG est très joli.
Bravo et merci....JP

Great shot with perfect focus and crystal clear details.
