Stunningly detailed image of this unusual fly.
I've seen similar flies but none with such widely spaced apart eyes!
Excellent DOF and BG.
Very nice colours as well.
I like the other POV you show us.
Thanks for sharing this Ignasi!


Ciao Ignasi,
complimenti per questa bella foto di Gonia ornata.
Mi piace soprattutto la luce diffusa, senza sgradevoli riflessi e la perfetta messa a fuoco sul soggetto e sul fiore.
Molto interessante e didattico il riquadro in basso a destra, che mostra le caratteristiche macchie bianche sull'addome di questa specie.
Un abbraccio,

Hola Ignasi,
the colours of the flower and the detail sharpness of both, the flower and the fly are pretty good.
The background design is highly appropriate to let stand out the important 'players' of your picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Hola Ignasi,
I agree about the ID: this is a fine capture showing two views of Gonia ornata. Both macro views have fine sharpness and are taken from excellent POV's that allow us to see the fly very well. nice composition on the flower.
Gracias por compartir,
