Awesome capture! Fantastic details, colours and light!

Excellent detail, a superb macro shot.


Impresionante captura Sergio.
Mis felicitaciones.

Really powerful and well presented macro, Sergio!
Details and colours are great.

Hello Sergio,
Very nice "sunset" photo of this killer. I like the POV and details a lot. The framing I would do more to the left to preserve more species at front of the fly, not behind.
Anyway a great shot!
Best greetings and TFS,

¡¡Impresionante, Sergio!! ¡Vaya macro!
Magnífica nitidez y excelente fondo y composición.

Stunning result, sucked the life out of the vicitim.
Superb sharpness and composition.
Well done

Hey Sergio
Superb shot

Oh my, this reminds me of a very old movie "The Fly". I was so young when i saw it and it freaked me out so bad that i was shivering then. And this picture seems like it! LOL i'm not shivering now!

Awesome sharpness and action shot. Lighting and DOP is great because the colors stand in contrast and the subject is isolated to focus.

Excellent job!
