From the family Tabanidae. Ok, still not certain if this is indeed a March Fly – if anyone can clarify that’d be fantastic. I’ve looked through dozens of species and this is the best I can do.
Shot with a Canon 7D, 100mm f/2.8L, mt-24ex twinlite and 68mm kenko tubes. Processed raw in Photoshop CS5.
