|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The most of photos that I show here are taken on hilltops to species with hilltopping behaviour. Some "rare" species are easily founded in those places.|
Hill-topping is a mate-location behaviour seen in many insects including butterflies, dragonflies, wasps beetles and flies. Whitin Diptera, some species of Tachinidae and Syrphidae show strong hilltopping behaviour.

a great picture of this particular fly.
Point of view is well selected and excellent.
Focus is precisely on the frontal parts!

mais uma foto incrivel e com muita nitidez mostrando ótimos detalhes deste inseto.
As cores estão perfeitas assim como a iluminação e neste caso vc conseguiu um bom POV, já que a mosca esta de frente..
