Brrrrr - it's so grey... Like winter in Poland. I miss your butterflies and dragonflies.

Yeah I know what you mean... nothing to use the raynox on!!
Great shot of this Robber-Fly!
Maybe slightly dark but could easily be brightened.
Excellent sharpness and clarity.
Great composition as well.
Well done Grzegorz,

Very nice DOF and sharp details Greg.
Well composed closeup, I like the woods grain running diagonally through your frame.
So here we are again in the middle of winter..You know it's bad when you start missing the flies ;-0

I certainly don't miss flies, but I miss summer!
This is a very good macro. Well composed and sharp.
A lovely capture of this robber fly. Excellent details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.
BTW: Have you used the DCR-250 on you 400D?
I couldn't get any shot from robber flies, even in summer times :-) I've met this species time to time but the ones that i met are so timid! This species one of my favourite, looks interesting indeed.
On the other hand, about having winter times in Poland or at anywhere on the nourth side of the world, you know the dreams are more colourful, interesting or let's say beautiful than the real life, so i'm sure 2 weeks very enough to having winter times there!

Hi old friend.
I see you are digging in your archivies again.
Fine close-up with good detail and sharpness.
The DOF is also very good as it is for a Compact Digi.
Well done, Greg.

I miss the flies too, Grzegorz!
(I also miss the light!)
This shot of a Robberfly is taken from a perfect POV that shows all the features with good sharpness, which makes it stand out well against the similarly coloured BG.
Thanks for sharing this;
Best wishes, Ivan

I know how you feel! We had some tiny Banana flies around our bowl of fruit here the other day - really exciting!! ;-) Anyway, this is a very fine capture of a Robber Fly showing sharp details and fine colours. I like the diagonal background too. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Good shot Greg, so sharp and with good clarity. He sounds quite a vicious beast too - not the sort I'd like down under.
Interesting notes too,

Hi Greg,we're well into winter now,but our flies don't seem to have realised.
We only have a few small houseflies here(not like the masses of huge blowflies,bluebottles and greenbottles we got when we were living on farms up north).
Luckily I can snatch them out of the air easily ... my kung fu training you see ;)
I don't see many robberflies here,even in the summer,but when I do I try to photograph them.
Not too much luck so far, but Joe is going to send me a Raynox DCR 150 soon so I'll be better equipped.
This is a great shot by the way.
