Hola laurens

Perfecta imagen, creo que pudiera ser uno de estos dos nombres, consulta internet y elige el que creas posible, yo he puesto uno de ellos hace dos días, y es el primero referenciado, pero tu comprueba los dos.

Promachus sp o Asilus crabroniformis

Un saludo de Antonio

Hallo Lou,
a beautiful dedication to Catherine; an interesting macro shot of this colourful Robberfly, good sharpness, excellent POV and BG in a nice composition.
Best regards

Hello again Laurens friend,
It's good having you as neighbor today! ... You also have robber flies similar to ours! .. Hummm.. Are very weird, eh? ... but in the ugliness, they have a certain charm! ha ha ha :) ... Good picture MF!, interesting and eloquent POV!
TFS, Regards, Jesús

Sory Lou ik kan je ook niet helpen met ID
Mooie compositie met goede POV en kleuren
De scherpte is niet wat ik gewent ben van je(normaal ben je scherper)
Al met al toch een net plaatje
