Guess who I am!

Gymnosoma sp. (Diptera, Tachinidae) couple. Body size: 6 mm.

 

Yet another common Tachinid species for a good early morning fun. I found them in this situation and thought they are still enough and motionless. After finishing the sequence realized the significant movement of the female's antennae. Luckily, I could resolve it in the stacking program, using 2-3 frames from the whole stack. Find some details in the comment below!

 

Natural light stack taken from 54 exposures with the MP-E65 lens at 2.2x magnification, f/4.5, 0.5 sec., ISO-100, slightly cropped.
