Male dance fly Empis trigramma
Size: 8 mm

Early morning stack of this predatory fly, lit by the morning sun from behind.

I find the male genitalia quite intriguing (there's a quote for you) – it looks almost like it has a built in snare!

Stacked from 34 natural light exposures in Zerene Stacker.
