I was taken by Schneider Componon 4/35mm as reversed combined with Nikon PB-6 Bellows. Thank you!

It's very popular in Vietnam (Southern). It turns dark very quickly after dead.

Thank you for the Website, Rik!

The white eyes are new to me also. There are some white eyed horse flies mentioned in BugGuide https://bugguide.net/node/view/33044

The white eyes in the US species are found only in the males. The males may be nocturnal (they are found in light traps) which would explain the large ommatidia on the top. Large ommatidia can improve night vision.

And, a lovely image!
