Highlights are a little over exposed, and maybe a little over sharpened (all the hairs have a white fringe around them). Still, I like the detail you have managed to capture, especially the hairs on the orange part of the body.
I must let Paul tell you what this is, but it looks like a fly. In fact a very beautiful fly and very well photographed. It seems you were really near the subject. Althogh the head is out of DOF, it gives an artistic point this time, and also prespective. Thanks for sharing. I like a lot.
P.D: I like the note too :D ...Maybe you could help with your critics also, the growing of TN.

I'm not sure what this one is. It looks a little like the hoverfly Brachypalpoides lentus but the thick bristles on this chap show that this is not a hoverfly. I have the same technical points that Felipe and Miles have stated.
Grzegorz, I would like to politely point out that you have now posted 4 photos and have not critiqued any photos. The growth of this site relies on people critiquing other posts. You can critique in any language you prefer and you don't have to be scientific at all.

Pretty good shot, but is oversharpened and the head is not in focus.

When I was a little girl I was very afraid of the horrific creature like this. But now... after many years I know, that life and people are more terrific than every kind of insect. So... I'm looking at this photo and I'm entranced with this wonderful "heavy metal" insect :-)

Tak sobie wrocilem na chwile do Twoich TNowych poczatkow. Bardzo ciekawa muche udalo Ci sie zdjac - to jest przedstawiciel rodzaju walcownica (Cylindromyia) z rodziny raczycowatych (Tachinidae). Jak wiesz larwy much z tej rodziny pasozytuja na innych owadach, larwy Cylindromyia przewaznie na pluskwiakach tarczˇwkowatych (Pentatomidae). Ciezko powiedziec dokladnie, ktory to gatunek bo jest ich w Polsce 7 i wszystkie sa podobne.
