Hallo Francisco
Absolutely beautiful. It is really great and there are just too much to mention that is pleasing to the eye. So I’ll rather say:
Bravo! Bravo! Congratulations for a great image. The detail captured is spectacular, and I envy you for this one. This is really fabulous photography. A well deserved 10/10 and more. Thanks for sharing. My best regards.

Lovely macro shot friend Francisco ! Very brave but obviously successful use of ISO1000 here! Good detail, fine colors and briliant clean background! Bravo! Top quality addition to the Hover-fly family in the TN library! Have a great evening/day my friend!
