i have no idea what type of insect this is but it does look like a minaturaized wasp. it's about 8mm long, i'm guessing.

selam tom; excellent macro this wasp ,good details presented ,nice BG and POV well captured with beautiful colours TFS

Hello Tom,

It's a soldier fly (Stratiomyidae), most probably Stratiomys maculosa.

Best regards,

Por la forma de la cabeza creo que no se trata de una avispa,sino de una mosca cernidora.Suelen adoptar forma de avispa para camuflarse.Un saludo.

Hi Tom¸

Hi Tom,
this is a fly that pretends to be a wasp to get by and look more dangerous than it really is,somewhat like the dronefly does.Given how tiny this critter is you have done well in your capture of it the only thing is your focus is a little off,but a fine addition to TN just the same and Tfs. Bob

Hi Tom,
I am amazed by you photographic skills. This macro is superb. It does look like a wasp doesn't it. The detail in the image is wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing.

Quelle belle macro avec tellement de détails.

Very nice macro. Great detail and colors on this little critter. TFS, Mish
