Dear TL-members!

I spotted this hoverfly which was perching on this lovely daisy flower. The bee was too busy to feel my presence but it was so nice to watch this moment that somehow, I had to record this moment :)

Have a great start in the week!

best greetings,

Hi Paras
Excellent macro shot
Amazing details, colors and clarity
Thanks for sharing

Hi Paras,
Very good close-up, the colours and sharpness are nice and appealing. Great composition and exposure too, I can't fault this. Well taken.


Hi Paras

Great macro with nice details and image quality
The POV is well managed with that half circle across the shot
Thw shallow DOF works good for background but less details on the flower heart

TFS, Alireza

Bonjour Paras,
Une merveilleuse Daisy avec ses pétales nacrés. Joli support pour cette abeille qui est esthétiquement fine. Je n'en ai jamais vue de si près. Tendres sont les couleurs qui composent admirablement cette image.

Douce semaine mon ami.

Hi Paras,

Very nice macro of the hoverfly. The framing and crop present the partial flower nicely, with the hoverfly at a thirds intersection. Very sharp and I like the glints of light on the flower (water?).


Bonsoir Paras
Très jolie présentation et belle profondeur de champ (DOF)qui nous offre l'insecte avec une parfaite mise au point

dear Paras,
a beautiful scene of lovely daisy and hoverfly,
this fly looks like mending the parabola antenna of daisy, it is very cheerful.,
white radiating petals are well composed in this macro view, and yellow center and fly are vivid nicely,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Ciao Paras,

Seems like the pretty bee really enjoys the daisy!
Excellent details in the insect, good point
of view on level with the eyes...
Attractive colour palette, macro work well
done with accurate focus!



Hi Paras,
ein wunderschöner Moment - ich liebe solche Aufnahmen - bin ja selbst begeisterte Macro-Fotografin, besonders Insekten haben's mir angetan.
Also vielen Dank für Deine süße Stiftschwebfliege (Sphaerophoria sp).
