[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I believe this is a long legged fly? It is extremely small, but I found it to be very pretty. It is hard to see its metallic green/blue colors in this picture. If I am wrong let me know.

Hello Elena,
As far as I can tell from my guide books, your ID seems correct. Your image shows off it's beautiful colors and allows us to see it's features in fine detail. Well done!!

Yes, it's a Long-legged Fly, Elena.
I too have shot this subject several times. It is a small but attractive species with a shiny metallic look.
You have captured it well from a bold perspective.

Yes it is long legged fly , the details and the composition is good , the brown BG makes this fly stand out in the frame. Lovely

Oh Elena how cool is this and a great detailed shot at that! Like the POV, caught one myself before, like you said they have the neatest metallic blue core. Great capture!
