Macro of Scorpion fly by Aussieroo57

Currently unavailable for purchase

Well not a lot happening Macro wise so far this year. Is a lot different to last year. Council has been and mowed all the weeds down and there for the habitat of a lot of the insects we shot last year. But here is an old friend from last year that has made a return. I like this shot because the background has what looks like a spot light surrounding his head.

A scorpion fly, just hangs around looking dead till something gets to close and then you want to see how fast they move.

    Thank you Gethin, always rewarding to have someone appreciate the macro world. It certainly gets you in and you learn a lot about their habbits of where they are, when they appear, how long they are around for etc. And it is just great when you find something totally new. I have a lot more in my macro album on my other site if you are interested here:
    Not sure they are worth sharing here yet.
