Brave man, Its got to hurt, but anything for a good shot right? Nice detail and sharpness here. The colors are also spot on. Well done Dietrich.
Oh and did you smack it when you were done taking the picture?

Well done Dietrich!
The nature photographers lot can be hard sometimes. Nice sharp capture of the head of this working female T. bromius. Some of these horseflies have incredible eyes. I hope you did not get too much irritation afterwards.
I was tempted to become a blood-donator to a specimen Haematopota pluvialis but I realised that I had the wrong lens at the time: she was too close.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

na das nenne ich wahren Einsatz für TN!
Sich stechenlassen von diesem Biest für ein Foto - brrrrrrr - ich renne davon sobald ich diese Biester heranbrummen höre.
Vielen Dank, sehr eindrucksvoll.

Wow, what a sacriface!!! When I look at this picture it hurts! ;>
I agree with you, the eyes of Tabanidae are fantastic, but the females of these species not! ;> Of course as a zoologist I understand meaning of these insects, but I still do not like them to meet in the field :)
So once again many thanks for this picture! You clearly showed that there is no price to pay which a photograph can pay for a good picture! ;>
