[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of those flower flies or you can say hoverflies and myathropa florea on this one! These flies are really beautiful, many people think about that it is a bee, but a bit careful look would skip that idea easily.

On that day, the sun was shining brilliantly and i found some beautiful creatures on the rosa canina plant. The pinkish rosa canina flower attract the different insects and the spiders. The light was so nice, a photographer looks for it all the time but may find it rarely.

Merhaba Ersin,
Great macro shot of this bee!
good sharpness, wonderful colour and superb details
well done and many thanks for the sharing

Salam Ersin,

Great macro capture of this "Hoverfly" with nice colors & detail. TFS.



You provide us with a beautiful example of a "soft focus" composition Ersin, this fine example of a hoverfly really looks like a bee without hind wings on the rosehips flower. Thank you for sharing this nice piece of nature with us.

Hello Ersin,

Beautiful composition. Excellent focus on the wings and the back of the insect. Your DOF is a little bit too short. Nice light and soft colours.

Hello Ersin.

Fine colours, texture and details.
Congratulations for wonderful work photographic!
