The Boatman Fly – Pogonortalis doclea of the Platystomatidae family, earnt it’s name by the way it swings its wings whilst walking, looking much like one would when rowing a boat – and it’s true, because it’s exactly what the little guy was doing when I shot this, and I had no idea what he was up to!
Shot on the 18th of October 2009 in Brisbane, Australia, with a Canon 450d and a 70-300 is usm telephoto with 68mm of stacked extension tubes.
Shutter: 1/160th (also fired built-in flash)
