I am not familiar with the technique you have mentioned in your note, HP.
However, the image of this Robber Fly is very good. The focus looks exceptionally sharp though the colours may be a bit on the down side.
TFS and all the best.

I don't think my Beetle would like this one!! You've really managed to shoot it very well here! Excellent and interesting sharp details and it shows up nicely on the light background. A fine composition too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Even the word neuro alone worries me. I and Jane both have neurological problems...so any toxin which would affect the nervous system, even if in small amounts would be not a good thing. So in that regards, I am glad I am looking at a picture instead of the real deal...I wonder if anyone remembers 6-12 lotion...might have been the 1950's makeup of DEET....Very good shot and super lesson/information HP!

The Robberfly is wonderful - very sharp with excellent details. I love the wings and the little hairs on his legs. I have a feeling I'm not the only one who is unfamiliar with the technique you used. Could you explain it more fully?

Very nice capture of Robber fly with High Dynamic Range technique. Details of the fly are well captured. DOF and POV are great. It is difficult to get an optimum exposure for a subject seated on a bright spot amidst dull BG. You've done it very well. I've attempted HDR on still life, not on insects. I would prefer to do in a bounced light ambiance. Its a great shot.
Thanks for sharing

Now this is indeed a so what called "Black Beauty". Every little detail on this robber fly is clear and displays well. The big eyes and the segmented body is truly an eyecatcher. You photographed the fly well and presented it with great clarity. Here I especially refer to the visible veins on the wings and the spikes on the paws. Thanks for this contribution. Kind regards.

Whenever I see the name Robber Fly I always look twice,as my name is Robert Fry.LOL.
A very good capture with very good details.
Nicely placed in the frame.
The lighting and colours are very good.
DETAILS, DETAILS, Details...
As you know I know VERY VERY little about photograpy; however, in your notes you say: "... Please do feel free to express your expressions about this one."
So, here is my say: The colours are a bit FLAT... no life ... as your other images have been. Otherwise this is a GREAT GREAT piece of photography work.
Shall attempt a W/S.

As you know I was not in Poland last time so many of your pictures were overlooked by me :( But now - even if again only for very short period - I am able to write a few words to your pictures.
This time I decided to choose Asilidae fly. The reason is that last two weeks, when I was in Baltic states, together with my friends and specialist in this insect group, we collected some Asilidae for scientific studies. Believe me or not, but this family was not known from this region before! Almost the centre of Europe and still "white area". So please imagine what is known from India! Probably many new species are waiting for discovery, who knows, maybe this from the photo is new for science? :>
Best regards from Lodz!
PS. By the way, just for fun please look here where one of my older Asilidae pictures was presented :)
