this wonderfull fly doing mimicry to honeybees. the mimicry is a technique of camouflage. in this technique the animal who doing the mimicry look like a dangerous animal. in this case to honeybee that have a venom sting, and come in high numbers.

incredible technique to capture it in flight!
Lovely capture, with great timing and fantastic colours. The movement of wings is very well captured, with good focus of the striped eyes. Well done! Cheers,
