Great shot!! Excellent sharpness and details. The bg is also well blurred out. You have captured a very nice posture of the insects.

Very intersting macro with Todtentanz. Perfect quality, but first of all amazing scene. Looking at this picture everyone should think about life and death, pleasure and pain and how similiar we are to something so small like robberfly.

Very good sharpness and POV.
Bitte, lege zwischen den einzelnen Vröffentlichungen doch längere Pausen ein! Ich kann der Steigerung kaum folgen (werde wohl alt...)!
Ich meine es nicht wörtlich, aber doch im Ernst. Du zeigst uns unglaublich packende und schöne Bilder aus der Insektenwelt. Dieses hier ist perfekt inszeniert, dramatisch und instruktiv, vor allem auch zusammen mit dem sehr interessanten Begleittext.

Hello Dietrich, I am amazed at such a clear, sharp and well exposed picture showing us these flies. It seems the male keeps the female busy while doing his things ;-) I would too! The most striking thing in this picture is the male holding itself and the female and the catch with its antennas! Incredible and very interesting post, thank you!

It is a very beautiful capture and really descriptive document, I even thought about the male-female-gift ritual before reading your note, excellent.
Light is powerful but controlled, details and composition very nice, but eh pose really makes it :)
Thanks very much with your help with the Boyeria Irene, it is very appreciated.
Best regards, Felipe.

Great stuff..Talk about just hangin' out, this guy does pull-ups at the same time he's doing the death dance..
Perhaps a bit of a misnomer, he seems to be having too much fun :)
Excellent flashwork, details, color, framing, POV, and DOF.
Nice smooth BG as well.

An amazing capture and a note to go with it.I wish more TNers noticed this excellent capture..:)
Wonderful shot of the couple mating and also the female being engaged with a prey to handle.Fine use of flash light highlighting every little detail on the pair and to a great extent of the prey.
Good sharpness, clarity , colours and contrasts.Excellent PoV allowing a fine DoF.The placid BG allows to maintain the focus of the viewer completely on the subjects.
Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

Thanks for your kind critique on my recent image of two Painted Grasshoppers. I am obliged.
Your picture of these Dance Flies is a classic image becaue it records a delicate moment in the course of their ritualistic mating.
With tripod anf flash, you have captured a marvellous image with immaculate details and lovely colours.
Your note is very educative and helps immensely in appreciating this image.
Thanks and regards,
