Rhingia campestris

Rhingia campestris is a species of hoverfly, 7–11 millimetres (0.3–0.4 in) long, with a wingspan of 12–18 mm (0.5–0.7 in). It is common in many parts of Europe from March until November. It has a broad orange abdomen with a black line along the sides (the black line is absent along the sides of Rhingia rostrata), and has the distinctive long snout of all Rhingia species. Larvae are associated with cow dung. Adults males feed on nectar, while adult females feed on protein rich pollen, reflecting the cost of developing eggs.

Hello Nuri,
What an awesome macro image of this neat looking hoverfly. I love it's rather unique looking snout and very large eyes. Outstanding detail and beautiful colors. The clean blurred BG really keeps your focus on the fly.
I am curious as to whether the tiny white specks on it's body could possibly be a type of parasite or just pollen from the flowers?

Ciao Nuri, great macro of lovely hoverfly on beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Nuri,
Une image qui déclenche un sourire chez moi..tu as choisi un angle très spécial mais qui met si bien en valeur la forme particulière de cette mouche. Bel arrière-plan neutre, comme d'habitide, bonne netteté aussi. Et un sujet pas souvent montré. Un grand merci aussi de ta critique.
