here we have a shot with two guests,
a Silver-washed Fritillary (Argynnis paphia) Kaisermantel
and a hoverfly (Volucella zonaria)
in German Hornissenschwebfliege.
They were sitting together so friendly, I hope you also like them, thanks for looking.

Hi Sabine

Another amazing macro from you, dear Sabine.
I'm simply amazed by the quality of the DOF here, especially. With an f/14 you managed to get so much in full focus and bring such great and sharp details to both of your subjects.
Also, the flash management is impeccable and the POV from where you took this one is lovely.
Wonderful work!

Bravo and TFS

hallo Sabine,
Hier bringst Du ein ganz ungewöhnliches Bild. Es ist voller Leben, sieht doch Dein Schmetterling sehr überrascht aus, die Hornissenschwebfliege zu sehen. Und das Licht, das durch den Blitz erzeugt wurde ist sehr speziell. So wie in einem Film.
Gut gemacht.
Liebe Grüsse
