Fantastic piece of photography, from an unusual angle! What a weird looking little critter. The eyes seem tiny to most bees, hoverflies and drone flies I have seen pics of - but then, I am not at all experienced in this line of knowledge.

Love the pic.

This photo looks like a hard to make shot . My DFA 100 would focus a lot in AF so maybe you manually focused .

Actually i used center spot focus, but it took a lot of shots before i got this one, and itís not even realy sharp, and grainy to as i had to go up on iso1600 to get some shutter speed.

I also think itís looking very weird, and it was first time i ever saw this insect, the good thing was that i spotted it in my little greenhouse, so i could close the door and hunt it around in there.
