Hi Jose
Cute and elegant. Great photo. I like the moment. Background is perfectly blured, subject is sharp and nicely presented Nothing to critique

Hello Jose !
What a great picture ! This fly covered with dew-drops looks gorgeous, as if she was covered in silvery jewels. I also like all the details, the soft colors, the wonderful composition and the nice blurred BG. Very well done !

Ola Jose !

Excepcional macro!
Bien hecha y que desempeñan.
Un hermoso día,

Hi Jose,

Wonderful and great shot! You're capturing well this artistic moment. Big and small water drops with mirrow draw it out artistic effect in the whole indeed. And then, it's nice about color tone/sharpness. I saw the photograph to which the mind was moved after a long time.

Thanks and regards,

Hola José Ramon,

Este es un macro muy fino, logrado con mucha profesionalidad.

Celebro los ajuste opticos y la precisa utilización del flash, logrando excelente nivel de detalles y un brillo justo en los restos de rocio que circundan al insecto.

Muy buen trabajo, buena composición de peso central.

Gracias por compartirlo.

Hi Jose. The one thing i noticed is in the large water droplet you can see the sky and i belive some grass in the refection. I think most things have been said about this wonderfull macro shot already. I would go as far as to say this is the best i have seen for a long time. First class Focusing,detail,colour and lighting. I am going to put this in my favourites list. Very well done .


Hi Jose Ramon, a delightful and superb macro capture of this fly having tiny droplets on its body from a great POV with impressive details, nice DOF and fine composition.
TFS and cheers,

Hola Jose,
che straordinaria macro dai dettagli impressionanti e dai colori stupendi, POV, DOF e composizione sono eccellenti, super trabajo.

Hola Jose Ramon.
Exelente Macro. Lleno de Finos detalles en toda la imagen.
La calidad de esta presentacion es de muy alto nivel.

Hallo Jose
I am sure you got up very early, with a spray bottle filled with water and gave this fly a lovely refreshing shower, before you grabbed your camera and photographed it with the water droplets still fresh on its body. I hope you know that I am only joking! This image is worth a round of applause and deserves an A+ rating. This is just so beautiful. The whole picture is striking, and a pleasure to look at. The water droplets covering the leave and the fly are lovely. The dew droplets on the fly’s body are great and look like soap bubbles. The focus, sharpness, composition and overall presentation are splendid. I cannot let it pass without adding it to my favourites. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hi Jose,
Wonderful marco shot. The fly carrying so many water-droplets standing against a green-colored background make this a special moment. Nice details and composition, I must say.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jose.
As usual you have shared breathtaking macro shot. Subject is amazing as well as the skill and quality of the picture. Simply brilliant reproduction the tiniest drops and other so tiniest details of the leaf, fly and even reflection into the drops. My congratulations and best regards. Bravo.
Yours Alexei.
