[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
The family Sciomyzidae, the marsh flies, are of the order Diptera; some of the subgroups of this family are occasionally accorded status as separate families (Huttoninidae, Phaeomyiidae and Tetanoceridae). Marsh flies are generally slender, yellowish or brownish, ¼–½ inches long. They have fairly prominent eyes, prominent forward-pointing antennae, and bristles on the femora (upper hind leg). The wings are often mottled with various light brown markings according to species. Marsh flies are common along the edges of ponds and rivers, and in marshy areas where the larvae prey on or become parasites of slugs & snails. Very little is known about the complete life cycle of these flies.

Habitat: Near ponds, streams, marshes. Food: Adults drink dew and nectar. Larvae prey on slugs and freshwater snails.

Hi Jose

A splendid macro shto from you, with this very interesting creature - a marsh fly.
Its eyes are surely striking and vivid and stand out well out of the shot, but also the rest of the fly is superbly reproduced and presented with loads of sharp details.
Excellent magnification and DOF used as well as very good lighting on your subject.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Jose,

Wonderful macro of this fly who seems to be marching across the leaf. Very fine details - the head is amazing. Nice natural colors and an excellent post.


Ciao Jose,
non è facile riuscire ad ottenere una foto così nitida con un soggetto tanto piccolo e diafano come questo dittero.
Incredibile la ricchezza di particolari che si possono osservare in questa tua immagine: gli occhi, in particolare, sono eccezionali.
Complimenti anche per l'inquadratura laterale del soggetto.
