Panorpidae are a family of scorpionflies. This family contains more than 350 species. They are 9–25 mm long.
These insects have 4 membranous wings and also have threadlike antennae. Their elongated faces terminate with jaws that are used to feed on dead and dying insects, nectar, and rotting fruit. While in larvae form, they scavenge by consuming dead insects on ground.

Le Panorpidae sono una famiglia di Insetti dell'ordine dei Mecoptera.Di questa famiglia fa parte la Panorpa communis qui riprodotta,conosciuta anche come "mosca scorpione" per la particolare somiglianza della coda a quella degli scorpioni.

Excellent macro, Luciano. Good color, lighting, presentation is great!

Bonsoir mon ami,
C'est assez incroyable cette coincidence. Hier, j'ai passé une partie de la soirée à chercher à identifier ces jolis insectes, mais sans succès. J'ai pris quelques photos, mais bien moins belles que la tienne. En ouvrant TN, je découvre ta photo et l'identification! Les couleurs et la netteté sont excellentes. Bravo!
Ciao,
Catherine

Bonsoir Luciano,

Très bonne photo de cette femelle panorpe. Très bonne netteté et superbes détails. J'ai essayé de prendre des photos encore ce matin mais ces "mouches" ne sont tranquilles que dans les coins ombragés. Au soleil, elles ne restent pas en place. Superbes couleurs et bonne utilisation du flash.
Bonne soirée,
Mariki

Ciao Luciano, bella mosca scorpione, molto ben detagliata e con ottimi colori, l'ho fotografata anch'io domenica ma la tua è migliore, io la mia me la lascio per i periodi di magra:)
Ciao Silvio

Hola amigo.
Una estupenda nitidez.
Magnífico encuadre y buen comentario.
Ciao, JL.

Buen macro Luciano, nitido y con buen color, aún no he tenido oportunidad de fotografiar una. Un saludo

Affilato affilato e molto lo affilato. È così chiarisce quell'identificazione non è duro a tutto. Che l'immagine meravigliosa. Lei guarda attentamente per questi sì? Bene fatto!
Bob

Magnifica. Nitidissima con quel raggio di sole riflesso che la impreziosisce.

Very detailed macro of this female Scorpionfly!
We can see every vein on the wing and every miniscule speck on the body.
A great POV and composition.
Nice colours and very good flash-work.
Well done Luciano!

Hi Luciano,
Wonderful shot of this scorpionfly with very impressive sharpness and colours. Good use of flash lighting and you have captured a fine pose on that green leaf. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.
TFS.

Salut Luciano...
et merci : j'ai fait une photo de cet insecte hier, et je ne savais pas ce que c'était. Je te la mets en ws, tu pourras confirmer si c'est le même insecte ou pas. Tes notes sont toujours très instructives.
Antoine.

Hi Luciano,
Very nice macro, great colors and sharpness. Fantastic flash work - if I shouldn't have read the exif info, never thought that flash fired while making this photo. Really a good pic, my compliments.
Ciao, László
