It has a little size, between 5 to 6 mm aprox.
Taken in my garden.

Hello Hernán,
An excellent macro of this mosquito-like fly taken from a great POV with superb sharpness lighting, and nicely composed in the yellow flower.
I think the wing shape and position indicate that this is some species of fly and its presence in the flower suggests that it is not a blood-sucker.
TFS and have a good weekend,

Hello Hernan,

Ciao Hernan,
splendida macro di questo insetto zebrato, ottima definizione e buoni dettagli, molto bella la composizione con lo sfondo giallo oro del fiore.

Tremendo el aguijón de ese mosquito!
Como para tenerlo presente la próxima vez que alguno esté rondando.
Muy buenos detalles y sobre todo excelente el contraste con el vibrante amarillo.
Muchas gracias por compartir la imagen.
