You've captured a fine (Marmelade ?) hoverfly specimen on this beautifully coloured and formed flower group Sayat, good job indeed!

Hi Sayat.
What a pictorial,. colourful close-up of a wonderful flower and its cute visitor. Especially I like red-orange spot on the top of a shot and amazing green BG-surroundings. DOF is great. All flower and hoverfly are in focus and perfectly detailed. Lights as well as POV and symmetrical composition of the picture are great too. Well done and TFS.

Merhaba Sayat bey,
renkler ,netlik ve kompozisyon olarak nefis bir fotoğraf, ellerinize sağlık.

This arrangement is wonderful, Sayat, I love that blue colour and the damselfly is lovely.
I've been looking to find a ID for you - but no chance, I don't know, sorry.

Bonjour Sayat,
Malheureusement j'avais raté ta Centaurée! Je me ratrappe donc, d'autant plus que c'est une belle image du point de vue de la composition ainsi que des couleurs. Et le petit syrphe aux ailes transparentes est un plus, bien-sûr.
Un grand merci pour tes gentilles critiques aussi.
Je te souhaite une belle fin de semaine

Hi Sayat,
A good focus on hoverfly, flower seems a little bit moved, but not too much.I like patterns on insect abdomen its similar to some we have here but more colourful and nice. For macro you must try to buya Raynox lens, they´re not very expensive, obviously if you can.
The flower name is difficult in turkish to me: can you tell me the sound of ç, ğ and the "i" without points between others?


Bonjour Sayat,
Très belle macro bien éclairée dans un cadrage serré parfait permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
