Hello Nicolas,
Beautiful work, fantastic colors, like it very much
the plant is from Euphorbia genus
Regards, Dejan

Ciao Nicolas,
eccezionale immagine e messa a fuoco perfetta, se consideriamo le dimensioni di questo minuscolo dittero.

Buen enfoque y profundidad. Espectaculares colores favorecidos por ese "baño" de amarillo y verde.
La planta creo que es un tipo de Euphorbia.

Saludos Nicolás.

I LOVE the detail, composition and POV you've achieved in this photograph. I especially like how you've managed to get another insect in your shot in between the petals because of the angle you've chosen. Although I love the colors, I do think they are slightly off, the wings shouldn't have so much yellow to them. The color on the eyes are absolutely incredible! Great shot!

Hello Nicolas,

Sharp piture of this fly! Nice colours too.

Hello Nicolas!
This photo is fantastic for me because of the following reasons:
1. the object - so small but also so perfectly presented! You kept all inportant morphological characters of this insect and even more!

2. colours - warm, delicate, well saturated - it is a pleasure to watch this mosaic on tones

3.sharpness and DOF - I would say - better was impossible :)

4.composition - nice for watching but also very beautiful!

Summarizing - great work!!!
My best regards from Poland,

Guau!! ¡Qué foto!!
El bichejín es graciosísimo, muy curioso con esas alas y esos ojos de colorines. El cuerpo se mimetiza perfectamente con la euphorbia.
Asombrosa nitidez y preciosa composición.
Un abrazo.

Hola Nicolas.

Que chulada de insecto que nunca habia visto y destacaria sus ojos a colores y una especie de mochila que lleva a cuestas.
