|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Episyrphus balteatus (De Geer, 1776) is one of the most common, and distinctive hoverflies in the UK and throughout the Palaearctic region, which covers Europe, North Asia and North Africa.|
It is small - approximately 10mm long - and has an orange parallel-sided abdomen with narrow black bands.
Hoverfly larvae are aphid predators - they are important biological control agents of aphid pests occurring on crops.

I love your style of presenting, very eye catching,the minimal shown so appealing, alas your signature is a huge distracting no no.
I like the mood you have captured in this closeup capture of a hover fly against a smooth white BG, Sergio!
The light and exposure are well done, however, I have agree with Steve on teh issue of your name logo, as I feel too that this "hard-to-be-neglected" logo does decline the overall appeal of the scene IMHO.
Hope you don't mind my personal observation in this regard.
Have a nice Sunday.
Interesting presentation of a macro shot. I like the high key overexposure with the sharp detail on the hover fly and centre of flower only. Also the hint of the flower in the background adds an extra something. Artistic and eye catching.
