Hi Kalyan,

Family Micropezidae - Stilt-legged Flies, here follows some info i obtained from the internet,

Odd little flies, known for their displaying behavior of walking around and lifting their prominently marked front legs. Abdomen attached to thorax by "wasp-waist". Likely ant or wasp mimics. The posture of the forelegs may imitate ant and/or wasp antennae and provide them with some protection from predators,

Best Regards,


Kalyan, teyes of these mating insects are clear indicators of their genus, namely, Flies.
Very interesting Flies with quite long legs.
The macro is pretty good.
