[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ectophasia crassipennis' is a species of 'parasitic flies' belonging to the family Tachinidae subfamily Phasiinae.
This fly is present in most of Europe. The adults grow up to 59 millimetres (0.200.35 in) long and can mostly be encountered from early August through late September feeding on nectar of flowers (especially of Apiaceae and Asteraceae species).
Their large compound eyes are reddish. In this quite variable species the body may be blackish or brownish. The broad abdomen is flattened and sternite 7 is ventrally folded. The large wings have wide brownish or greysh dots and the cell R5 is opened at the edge.
The larvae are parasitic of Hemiptera, mainly of various species of Shield Bugs (Pentatomidae).

I like the point of view in this picture, Siegfried. The entire Fly and its special features, especially the eyes, are well captured in this shot. The floral BG also adds to the appeal of this picture.
