[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Is not a wasp, is not a bee, is not a fly ... I don’t know the name of this insect.
The interesting detail is the kind of bag visible only when looking with the good angle and acting as a pump.

Hi Pedro, just have a look at my latest picture showing this very fly (indeed it is) Rhingia campestris. That is amusing coincidence.

Very good job, I like this picture a lot.

Great macro shot. I'm buying a sigma 105mm macro in a months time and I hope I'll be able take as colourful and detailed photos like this on myself.

Hi Pedro.
You show excellent detail of this interesting moment. The composition is geat too. I think you could have forced just a bit the USM, it seems to have very nice quality. Excellent capture.
