Muy bueno esta foto de esta Myopa! El punto de vista excelente, así como las texturas. Enhorabuena. Un saludo

Hi Sergio,

Interesting species ... related to some parasites of Andrenidae alkili bees that we use to culture as pollinators for alfalfa seed crops. POV is good and focus partially good. Photo has some noise, but I like seeing this colorful and infrequently seen species. TFS

Best regards,

Hello Sergio,
What an unusual looking fly you have posted. I must admit I have never seen one quite like it, but you have done a fine job of photographing it for us. Exceptional detail and very pretty colors. Great work!!
