Hello Arjun,

This is a Soldier Fly, from the family Stratiomyidae. I do not know if it is exactly the same species of which I had already posted the picture Chloromyia formosa. Excellent focus and great sharpness of the wings. Beautiful colours.
Cheers,
Mariki

Hi Arjun,

A magnificent close-up of this Soldier Fly as identified by Mariki. I wouldn't have guessed what it was. The pose on the leaf is wonderful. Beautiful colors and razor sharp details of the entire insect. I love the dark background and the diagonal composition.

Hello Arjun,
admirable and brilliant presentation of surface structures, both for the insect and the leaf.
I think it will be difficult to identify the species! ... or, am I wrong?
Best wishes, Peter
