Wonderful close up.Sharpness,POV,cross framing,exposure and lighting are excellent.
This is a superb sharp and well composed macro. Great lighting, detail and BG and it looks good against the white flower.
But I don't think this is a Robber Fly: they have more separated eyes to be able to see their prey. I am not a dipterist, but I think this is a species belonging to the Bibionidae.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

A lovely composition - the angular fly on the delicate lines of the flower - set off the wonderful BG.

Great sharpness and details in this image.
Exposure is excellent and the composition with the diagonal line of the fly is very good.
I like the way the fly does stand out against the white flower, especially the hairy legs, very much.
Thanks for sharing.
Kindest regards, Harry

Fantastic macro showing this fly in super sharp details! It looks fantastic on the white flower where the beautiful brown colours on the wings really show up. Very fine background too.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hi Ann. a very clear shot with good detail and colour.A nice POV/DOF.very well done TFS.
Hope your son has used the "wild Pansies" medicine and is now feeling better.
This fly is very common in Australia. It kills bees. It belongs to the: Asilidae family.
And you can read about it on the internet.
Your image is IMPECCABLY EXCELLENT.
No need of further comment; it is that good.

Outstanding macro shot with impeccable sharpness and clear details of this trecherous Robber Fly. Set against the white flowers as BG it stands out perfectly. I like the sheen on its wings and the neat focus. Excellent POV to present its dorsal view and a superb composition. Kudos.

At first some correction to species ID - this is not a robber fly (Asilidae) but most probably a Empididae species. This family can be easy recognized thanks to long mouthparts (Asilidae do not have such long one).
Anyway, this is a very nice macro, with very good details. Only some noise reduction would be nice :)
TFS and have a nice evening,

peut être inconnue mais particulièrment réussie comme cliché.
Le plan serré donne des détails superbes, le blanc et noir sont bien associés. Une petite correction du bruit est néccessaire sur le BG.

je suis admirative de ta galerie.
Vraiment superbe ce cadrage avec un bel angle de prise de vue et une excellente PDC.
La coleur blanche de la fleur fait ressortir cette mouche

This a fantastically sharp picture. I also had a day in my village in england where there were many of these flys and I failed miserably to capture a shot anywhere near to yours..I did however capture one in a foxglove bell where his thorax is unmistakably the same fly. I am truly in awe of your pictures sharpness and detail and many thanks for sharing it.

what shall I say to this brilliant shot. Silvery wings and superbs clarity, diagonal composition takes it effect in making this shot real pleasant and captivating.
This hairy guy really enjoys himself.
