Bonjour Hernan
Très belle prise de vue,les couleurs tres belles, l'éclairage, les détails et la composition sont parfaits et le BG est très joli.
superbe cette insecte mangeant un autre insecte.
Bravo et merci....JP

Excellent macro Hernan.
For a subject as small as this, you have managed very nice sharpness and detail..and the VERY tiny prey so well seen. I think this is Dioctria hyalipennis, a very small version of a robber fly.
Merry Christmas!

Olá Hernan,
Bonita foto, é um espécie muito parecida com as que tenho em minha galeria. Robberfly são muito vorazes, capturam sua presa em pleno voo e depois pousam para sugar.Parabens.

Hi Hernan,
An excellent macro shot on this Robber Fly. He has speared himself a small snack. I like how you caught him in the spotlight of sun with the dark shade framing the composition. Nice sharp detail! Well done!

Ya estás logrando excelente resultados Hernan con el uso de la Canon, como se aprecia en esta macro.
Una excelente captura de estos dos insectos en plena acción, con adecuado POV y profundidad, además del correcto descentrado.
Tienen que trabajar (ambos) en la correcta combinación de compensación de exposición y balance de blancos para evitar excesos de luz en estas condiciones, es cuestión de practicar y disparar algunas decenas de veces sobre distintos fondos soleada y otros para tomarle la mano.
El resto... 10 punto.
Un gran abrazo y mis mejores deseos para estas fiestas que se avecinan... Ricardo

Hi, Hernan.
Great macro. Nice pose and good sharpness.
