Hello Aviar, excellent capture of this moment - well done. Good photo, good composition, subject and colours. I would like to see a little more DOF as the top fly is just slipping out but that aside it's a great shot.

Great picture. Incredible sharpness and excellent colours.

Bonjour Aivar, amazing shot of these insects with a perfect timing and a good POV. Sharpness and colors are excellent. Well done, Didier.

They could have come out of a scifi movie. Great, shivers down my spine. Love the composition, the colors, it's brightness.
