Fly - in search of an identity
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
We had been to Omkar Hills where I took the photograph of this fly. The sun had just come out and I took this photo using an exposure compensation of -1.
I would appreciate if you can help me identify the species.

Great shot with a point and shoot. Nice point of view highlighting the wings beautifully against the background. Excellent diagonal composition. You made the right choice with the exposure.

Hi Sisir & welcome to TN.
Nice details, and I enjoy the composition.
Bee-flies belong to the Order Diptera (True Flies), Family Bombyliidae. Bombylius major, is the largest and best known specie. The body is stout and furry, so that the fly has a strong superficial resemblance to a bumblebee, although the long, spindly legs are rather different from those of a bee.

I love the play with the wings!
