Hi Paulo,
A very sharp macro of this robberfly adorned with perfect details catching its prey.
Great light and an agreeable composition.
A wonderful blurred BG to render the subject is perfect isolation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paulo

A good macro shot of the robber fly. I am glad it got a mosquito for lunch! I hate mosquitoes! Perfect dof & good sharpness & bokeh. That neutral green bg works well as a backdrop. Excellent colour & framing. Tfs!

Hello TCR

Wow what a great macro you have here. Seeing nature at it's best. What does an extension tube do? can you use it on any lens? The result of your composition is outstanding. Sharpness, color, and subject. nice work


Hello Paulo,
Amazing photo, great macro, great drama of a small insect! Bravo!

Hi Paulo
excellent macro shot. incredible clarity of details. fantastic display of an insect holding its prey. good management of light and fine composition.

Olá Paulo,
Que detalhes impressionantes!
A mosca parece um monstro gigante. Linda suavidade no BG.
