Hello Friends,

I dont know the ID of this insect. I tried my level best to stay there for nearly an hour to see just the glimpse of the face but it refused. It was just sitting on the top of the playground on the flower and keep hovering here and there without showing me the face. But what it appeared to me that it was enjoying the playground as there was no one near or around. It was just enjoying its own space.. That thought made to give the caption.

Hope you all like it. BTW can some one tell me what insect is this. Is this some sort of Hoverfly???

Have a great weekend.

Hola narayanan, una composición muy bonita, con buena luz y color, la luz da una sensación de profundidad muy dificil de conseguir en macro. Enhorabuena, un saludo

Hello Narayanan,

Very nice composition. Very good sharpness and wonderful colours. I think it is a bee. Beautiful colours.

Hello Narayanan,
Amazing macro, it is a pleasure for my eyes !
The "+++" : composition, lovely flower with a nice visitor, POV, sharpness, DOF, blurred BG, contrast on BG, exposure, warm colors...
The "-" : perhaps less centered...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing,

Hi Ganesh,

A most beautiful flower with glorious colors and shadings. The little insect is a wonderful bonus. It's amazing how well detailed it is.


Hi Ganesh, there is an unusual alluring quality to this image.
The colors and light draw me, the viewer, in to examine more closer and enjoy it's beautiful luxurious details.
The golden center with the littel bee is gorgeous. Fine work my freind.

Hi Ganesh,
fine macro of this little insect.
It looks like some kind of wasp or bee... I don't think it's a hoverfly due to the long antennae.
Stunning colours!
Very good POV and central composition.
A striking image!
Well done,

Hello Ganesh

Lovely lighting and contrast.
The colours are rich and vivid.
Excellent focus and sharpness.
The POV is well done.


Nice shot. Beautiful colours and the central composition works perfectly. The posture of the bee also looks great. Good work.
