Mating Conopids II

Sicus ferrugineus (Diptera, Conopidae). Body length: 10 mm.


Final post about them, I promise! This attempt was the first and probably the most succesful stacking sequence about these flies. Focus stack of 114 exposures taken at 1,8x, f/5.6, 1/6 sec., ISO-200. Natural morning light diffused with an umbrella, a white plastic reflecting plate used from the right side (check it in the waterdrop on the eye of the female).
