Hello Ilker !
This is a nice picture of a strange insect which I had never seen before - I love its big striped abdomen and its grey eyes. You managed to capture some nice details, and I also like the natural colors, the composition, the POV from above and the beautiful blurred BG. But I'm sorry, I can't help for ID. I love to watch insects but I do not know many things about them, specially not on such species which are not common in my own land.
Greetings from France !

Hello Ilker,

Nice sharp shot of this solitary bee. Very nice detail of the wings venation. I think the composition could have been better: it would have been better to place the bee in the lower left corner of the frame. Good light and natural colours. I think this bee could belong to the genus anthidium.
