thanks for the compliment! You're perfectly right, these Bombyliids usually are so nervous, I usuallydon't have a chance to take a shot of them. They eluded me for years, but this year I decided to look out for them very early in the year, when only our free growing Primula are attractive to them. And today, a cold day, was a trap for many flying insects, including the Bombyliids. As you know well, macro shooting is to a good part entomology.
My best wishes to you, Ivan
