Ciao Roberto, sorry, unknown for me too, great macro of lovely fly with fantastic red eyes, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Tac sharp focus and nice POV. DOF obtained with F/18 is superb. This fly I believe is a muscoid fly belonging to the family Sarcophagidae (family of flesh flies) They feed on decomposing animals/meat in the larval stage. Some secrete alantoin (sp.?) and were once used to debride gangrenous wounds of soldiers in WW I (they eat only the bad decomposing flesh leaving the wounds clean).

A stunning macro image of this little fly. Love the exceptional detail and beautiful coloration. F/18 resulted in some fine DOF. Well done!!

Super Macro, the detail you have captured is wild. I thing the fill flash really helped. The DOV and POV are great. Your BG helps define the diptera very well.
