[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this tiny fly mimics bees.
True flies are insects of the order Diptera (Greek: di two, and pteron = wing), possessing a single pair of wings on the mesothorax and a pair of halteres, derived from the hind wings, on the metathorax.

The presence of a single pair of wings distinguishes true flies from other insects with "fly" in their name, such as mayflies, dragonflies, damselflies, stoneflies, whiteflies, fireflies, alderflies, dobsonflies, snakeflies, sawflies, caddisflies, butterflies or scorpionflies. Some true flies have become secondarily wingless, especially in the superfamily Hippoboscoidea, or among those that are inquilines in social insect colonies.

Diptera is a large order, containing an estimated 240,000 species of mosquitos, gnats, midges and others, although under half of these (about 120,000 species) have been described.[1]

Bir uçarın çekiminin ne kadar zor olabilceğini tahmin etsem de, çekim açısının frontal olmasını tercih ederdim. Elinize sağlık.
