Following with my diptera series , this time with a fly species that did not know and is something rare in my town, a fly that resembles a wasp, to distract possible afraid predators of the himenoptera. Another example of batesian mimicry.
Length: 1 cm
Species: stranger for my, I thank for identification data.

bravo et merci de partager

Nice DOF and good POV. Perhaps next time you could choose a lower point of view... I like the fact that you put this insect in it's natural environment. Good Macro and compliments of Arjuna...

Hi Hernan

You are busy fine tuning that Kodak to deliver some good macros I see. Maybe with this one the actual focus point was slightly next to the fly, but I think you still got sufficient details on the insect especially the frontal area.

The composition is nice, the colours are natural, and the BG is well OOF.

Good work and TFS.
Regards
Loot

Hernan, this is really very nice.

Excellent pov, composition and sharpness.

I like colors too.

Congratulations.

Hello Hernan,
This is a remarkably sharp macro of an insect which really looks like a cross between a fly and a wasp. Hopefully Krzysztof identifies it for you.
Grea POV, DOF, colours and details. The eyes in particular stand out very distinctly.
Well done and TFS.

Nice shot Dear Hernan, though I would like to see the tip of the wings a little sharper. The diagonal lines offer a beautiful composition.

Hola Hernàn:
Otra buena captura. Yo las veo en el jardìn de mamà, pero me falta un siglo para hacer las tomas como vos. Quizàs con mi nueva càmara sea posible...
Ciao.

Hi Hernan,
An excellent macro shot on this Wasp Fly. A good exposure has the color saturation and detail looking very good. Very well composed and framed dioganally thru the frame. Well done.

Hi Hernan
Wow what great colours here, I really like the soft lighting and the sharp detail of your fly. Interesting foliage this little fly is standing on. Excellent Macro!

Otra excelente macro Hernan, a pesar de la dificultad de tu visor, la nitidez y definición que logras en estas imágenes son realmente muy buenas.
Me encanta la suave inclinación de la escena, con muy adecuada iluminación con un perfecto desenfoque del fondo.
Los detalles que captaste tanto del insecto como de la hoja son muy marcados.
Para completar, un adecuado encuadre descentrado estéticamente muy agradable.
He visto dípteros similares aquí en Baires, aunque desconozco la clasificación de los mismos.
Saludos... Ricardo

Hello Hernan,

This is a soldier fly (Stratiomyidae), most probably from the genus Hoplitimyia.

Best regards,
Dmitry
