A nice capture of this strange looking fly. I have also captured the same species here but still looking for the ID. Anyway a nice and clear capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.
in my opinion, this is one of your best posts.
Very sharp with excellent detail.
Beautiful, vivid colours.
Excellent DOF and BG.
Superb POV and composition.
I disagree with Lana, I think the frame is perfect, highlighting the black of the bee.
Very well done,

This is a real beauty!
This is a kind of bee but not the honey kind, a species new to me. The central composition works well here because of the flower. Excellent sharpness, details and colours, the black and white of the bee contrasting well with the colours of the flower.
Well done and TFS!

a nice picture of a B/W bee, but can't help with ID.
It's maybe a bit bright but good sharpness and fine details.
Well composed even if it's a bit tight above.

What a beautiful image.It is perfectely sharp , colors and detaisl are just outstanding.
i am so pleased to see this beautiful macro from you, this is a very good shot, i liked the saturated colours of the flower and the sharpness of the insect very much, i can surely say that this one is your better macro shot posted so far on tn,
regarding the composition i would have preferred some more space left above the insect, anyway a very impressive macro,
tfs & regards
Great shot with lovely colours and sharp details. Superb lighting and you have captured a fine pose here on the beautiful flower. This fly really looks gorgeous, I also had a shot posted a few days back of the same one, unfortunately the ID is yet to be confirmed. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

This is a very good macro with good DOF and sharpness! The colors are pleasing and the eyes of the fly and the details on the fly is amazing

I certainly have never seen one. Perhaps this is why this one looks simply so sharp. The flora adds to the picture in a synergistic way. Very nice Ganesh!

You acheived good focus detail of this bee and center of flower.
Nicely composed though a bit close crop for the bee wing.
Colors are fantastic.

A beautiful colorful photo with awesome details and exposure. I've never seen this fly before, and I find its color very interesting. I am used to the yellow and black, but never seen a white and black. A very cool photo where you captured the insect in a wonderful pose.

excellent composition with bright flower as the background. Indeed the bee poses a good contrast to it. the sharpness and clarity push the subject better and stands out clearly.
