Finger Licking Good

A male Banded Eye Drone (Eristalinus taeniops). Male because its eyes are touching (females have a gap between them).

 

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/60, ISO 200) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 37mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX with head "A" set as the key and head "B" as the fill. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

 

Technique: I injected the flower with artificial nectar to give the critter a reason to let me get close.
