I have no idea which one is this but found in lalbagh like this pointing its tail to the sky perfectly as if its doing Yoga on the tip of a grass blade. Captured hand held and cropped for this presentation.

Hello Nagraj,
A fine capture of a very intreguing insect! The large eyes may suggest a species of fly, but the wings, antennae and absence of balancers suggest that this is a species of solitary bee or wasp.
An additional dorsal view might have been helpful for the ID.
Thanks and I hope someone can come up with a solution!
Best wishes,
Ivan

Hello Nagaraj,
A fascinating insect very well captured here.
The pose is rather funny. I wish you'd captured it from different angles but I know myself how you forget or else how it flies off! :-) The eye looks enormous and I like its colours. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
