Belle photo, la qualité de la photo est vraiment impressionante,
Excellent macro of the Crane Fly, George.
Why is there the bluish tinge and what is the stuff the fly is sitting on?
The focus is very precise and the details on the insect are remarkable.
TFS and regards.

One of the beat macro photos I have ever seen.
Just perfect, well done!
A superb macro of what I think is a species of Dance Fly, Empididae. The sharpness, colourful BG provided by the flower that it is on, the sharpness, DOF, good use of flash and composition make this an image up to professional standards.
Well done, thanks and have a good weekend,

Sorry I don't know the ID of this beautiful fly, but I think Ivan has identified it to some extent. A beautiful composition with the fly over a beautiful flower petal. Very good sharp details and a nice POV. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi George,very nice macro capture.
Funny and beautiful!! This shot looks like coming out of some cartoon for children, the little fly could be a creature for this kind of purpose. Amazing! Very original shot.
Have a nice evening
Impressive image of the - according to Ivan - Dance Fly.
I wonder if the bloom is an Orchid?!? I am growing Orchids and most photographs of them show this sort of ''spongy'' surface...
The details of this insect are impressive!
Have a good week

this is a amazing macro shot, this tiny fellow it's even hard to focus on and here we can see tons of details and really good DOF
It stand out nicely with the beautiful blue so rounding of Germanica.
Great work, my friend.
Hello George friend,
Do not bother, but I'm glad you're back to insects and make a break between huges mammalian quadrupeds! ha ha ha:)
As always, great detailed macro, and a "special touch" added by the amazing bright purple environment. Congratulations!
Have anice day MF!

Amazing image of this strange looking fly. It looks like part mosquito, part bee and part fly all thrown together.
The detail is superb and the colors are very beautiful. Excellent DOF and exposure. Great notes. Well Done!!
