I believe this to be a Horsefly. If not, I’m sure somebody will help me out! 🙂

It was another experiment in close-up / macro work. This was taken on a Lumix DMC-TZ60 – a point-and-shoot style of camera ( nothing wrong with that ) but because of the v small sensors in these devices this is almost certainly ‘close-up’ and not true ‘macro’ ( which to the purist requires at least a 1:1 image size to subject size capture ).

The niceties of such discussions aside, I was taken with the coloured bandings on the insect’s eyes – and the clarity in which the TZ60 had captured their detail.

I should also point out the error in the copyright line on this – the image is less than a week old! Oooops!
