[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The point of view here is not the ideal one, but I decided to post the photo anyway.

Photo taken where I shot yesterday's: a maize plantation at Mocambo Park. The size of the insect is less than once centimeter.

As for the identification, it looks like one of Paul Prince's capture. If I'm not mistaken, according to his note this might be "of the family Conopidae (thick-headed flies)".

In order to check Paul's whole note and his photo, please refer to www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/United_Kingdom/photo50.htm

Muy bonita foto.

Welcome to the insects world :), superb macro shot.
It seems that you did a little bit over sharpening.

Hi Livio, Lovely shot. It could be a thick headed fly, but it could also be a hoverfly, we have a similar fly belonging to the tribe Bacchini, genus Baccha. I'm not certain about any of this but worth a look?

Very nice macro, well done.

I don't share your POV when you write "The point of view here is not the ideal one". On the contrary, it's a very good one creating an original composition, where the fly and ants are put in evidence as artists on a stage. The perspective works very well to convey a kind of futuristic feeling here.

I like very much this dance with a wasp on a leaf, Livio. The PoV is good for me and the diagonal of the leaf is great. The BG is gorgious.
Thanks.l
