[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was taking a photo of a Taraxacum officinalis and I perceived the libation of an insect with its proboscis. It only sized 2mm and I forced the zoom to its maximum. It was shy and it showed me its back. In Europe, insects do the work colibri do in other parts of the world. In particular, I thought this insect was an Himenoptera of the family of Bombilidae, but then I realized that it was a Diptera, completely unknown to me. Thanking if you help me in classification.
