[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The most of photos that I show here are taken on hilltops to species with hilltopping behaviour. Some "rare" species are easily founded in those places.

Hill-topping is a mate-location behaviour seen in many insects including butterflies, dragonflies, wasps beetles and flies. Whitin Diptera, some species of Tachinidae and Syrphidae show strong hilltopping behaviour.

Hola Carlos

mais uma foto incrivel e com muita nitidez mostrando ótimos detalhes deste inseto.
As cores estão perfeitas assim como a iluminação e neste caso vc conseguiu um bom POV, já que a mosca esta de frente..
