I was very surprised to find this little fella in the bottom of my pool yesterday, they usually are only found here in the Spring.
They look really nasty little creatures I think, yet they're completely harmless......Good looking image Carol..
Excellent capture Carol! Perfect macro work.
Glad to hear they are not as dangerous as they look. Great detailed images Carol...........Sandy
Excellent and wonderful shots,love it,
Fantastic macro, great work.
Great POV in v1 making the antennae look so long
I do not recall ever having seen this chap before, Carol..... new one to me, but from V 3 it's easy to understand where the name comes from. and for that reason, that's why I'd place V 3 as my favourite. As always you manage to capture your subjects in such excellent detail.
I know this fly, it is an excellent model for macro photographers! Superb taken Carol!
Another three superbly detailed shots. Carol, all deserving a vote each.
SUPERB < > ALL 3 20/10
v3 for the same reason as ronnie.lesley
V3 for me too. I hope you were careful near him!
I have never seen one of these before Carol,are they as poisonous as the other varieties.Excellent.
Excellent work Carol - a new one for me as well...Bill
wonderful work. for an ugly bug you have made some beautiful shots.
THESE SHOTS ARE EXCELLENT WOW
Super set of close up captures.
V1 and V3 i like.
Well done Carol.
Hats off to you! You really know how to capture these little creatures and present them so well. I think I'm slowly starting to like them !!!!
wonderful set of shots! now would you be so kind and send them my way PLEEEEASE
stunning set carol got to be v3 for me today nice one
Wonderful images once again Carol, well captured.
V1 is one of your best ever, superb use of shallow dof to isolate an eyeball to eyeball encounter.
What a great capture as always the eyes are great
What a little darling !!!
Wonderful images once again.
V2 is a beautiful shot.
How do you dare swim in your pool.....or is it a pool for the insects?
Excellent detail and capture of this wee beastie! Patti
3 superb shots again Carol, V1 is my fav,
More superb images Carol - like the wing detail in V2.
Excellent macro shot.
Excellent as always Carol. A superb set. Well done
Excellent details of the Scorpionfly revealed in V2 & V3. With V1 I feel we can name it as Horsefly - Raja.
V 3 reveals its true nomenclature.
What an amazing looking creature, quite beautiful really. As usual you have captured it so well with excellent dof.
Very well taken, and I have never seen one before. Thank you.
What an unusual looking chap he is. Looks like 2 or 3 creatures all rolled into one! A wonderful set, Carol, each deserving a vote.
Amazing creature. I love the shape of the head and the diaphanous wings, and then we see the sting in V3. Wonderful set.
handsome fella and great macro shot
Another amazing series Carol
V1 for me if I had to choose, he has a most inquiring face?
Hi Carol, super shots you have here and all really well captured and presented. Like v2 I think because of those beautiful wings. Always a smashing first class job. Excellent work Carol on all of them. Let me know what you think of my mod on yesterdays upload please.
Super set, Carol. I saw one of these in the summer and now I know what it was. Wonderful sharp images. v.1 is a cracker.
What a curious looking little fellow and yet, so appealing in V1! As always, wonderful detail in all 3. Sorry I am very late today, great weather and yet more gardening at fault!
Three excellent macro captures of the "unusual insect," Carol, with fine color & details...Peter
Fantastic close up, Carol - all 3 are brilliant but in artistic terms, V1 is the best - You was in very good hand shooting this set - well done
Quote: Excellent and wonderful shots,love it,
I completely agree with Saeid.. Great shot..
a cracking set of 3 all can stand easily on their own ...difficult but i think for me V1 just gets it i like the kind of Inquisitive look captured i feel the whole set deserves more
Superb Carol - I actually love them all and it is very hard to choose between them. His face reminds me of a seahorse.
Stunning detailed set
captured to perfection, with a cracking background
great capture, it shows everything you want to know about this fascinating bug.
these imagesare truly outstanding carol,well done.ray
Three real stonkers Carol, you are in inspired form at present
Excellent shots Carol, amaizing detail as usual.
