Horse fly - Haematopota pluvialis

Last weekend I spent at my grandparents garden. I was looking for spiders, bugs and different creatures. I saw some amazing insects, but I wasn't able to take a shot of them because they were too fast for me... :( Despite that I found some really awesome looking horse flies which expressions gave a wide smile to me... :) This shot shows one of these expressions that I want to share with you.


This image is focus stacked of 3 images taken at F8 with a Pentax 28mm lens reversed on some extension tubes...


Here you can see another shot of different species horse fly compound eyes shot:

Thanks :)
