Lieber Peter,
Eine nicht alltägliche Erscheinung hier auf TN. Schönes feines Bild mit bestem Fokus auf Oberkörper der Fliege und harmonischer Farbgebung. Du hast recht, Fliegen können auch gute Sujets sein, bin aber auch kein grosser Fan von einigen unter ihnen.
Muss mal nachsehen, ob ich diese Schwebfliege auch in meinem Archiv habe.
Dein Bild hilft gut für einen Vergleich.
Herzlich grüsst
