Based on a comment by dmillard

my obligatory fly face for a new contributor.
Deer Fly, male.
Taken earlier this year, exposure details not recorded. A Helicon Focus 4.1 stack.

EDIT: title changed

One of the most impressive of such portraits. Might some editing of the background be worthwhile?

The colours are wonderful but the OOF legs are a bit distracting.

HG, P_T. Fair comment. Too much work to clean up the background. Will try again next year for a cleaner head - too late this year, all the decent bugs have gone.

WOW, very impressive eyes. Nice details on the probosis also. They are beautiful flies but I am glad they are gone for the year Wink

Thanks Doug and Tom.
Yes Doug your deerflies/horseflies are over for the year.
Tom, in Florida you are lucky and have them flying all year.
