[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When the morning sun was shining and as I was sipping coffee in my garden, I noticed an unfamiliar flight of an insect. Luckily it landed close to me on a brick and I had my Fuji FinePix A120 on hand. I did not know how it was as it was too small to notice it with naked eye as my concentration was on the LCD screen. Then if flew away after I could manage 3-4 pictures. I've cropped it up for best view. I was amazed to see on my PC that it was indeed a new insect I had spotted and shot. I got it identifed soon on my favourite website as a Robberfly, but the species could not be pin-pointed [I'd be glad if someone is able to do that here].

Hi Dinu
I really like this position of the roberfly. they´re a kind of very fast and difficult to capture in a way like this...
well done. Good POV, DOF and details on the body.
