Like your view through all the flying insects. I get itchy if I look at it long.

Wonder what they eat when they don't have photographers!? I'm scratching already. Apart from those bugs it's an idylic scene, and with that backdrop it's a perfect addition to the water theme.

Are these like the ones that you end up walking through and they get in your mouth, nose, and hair? Ugh I hate those!

Great photo though to be sure.

I like the insects, very delicate contrast to figures on water---lovely, 'layered' composition indeed. I got sweaty palms and sore shoulders looking at the rowers!

This is really lovely. It reminds me of a painting by Georges Seurat (?), and the bugs give it a new life. Great wrok.
