An extremely impressive close up photograph, in which you have captured not only the glorious colour and details, but also this magnificent pose, kindly donated by this rather handsome looking Fly and his bubble.

A good effort, but its way over saturated. Be careful with this so the finished image looks natural. Over saturation also can cause loss of detail.

Thanks for the constructive critique, I did saturate the image a bit to get the green to jump out a bit more. Will be more careful next time. Smile

But the moment was well caught!

Thanks John, appreciated. Unfortunately, I'm quite limited macro-wise with no true-macro lens. Soon, I hope, I'll be able to take even better quality close-ups Smile Glad you like this one though. I have some others from this type of fly which I'll upload in the coming days.

An extremely sharp image with that water droplet a bonus. I think this would still be excellent without the excessive saturation.
