Eristalinus

Eristalinus aenus, female, 11mm (Syrphidae) on Dasiphora fruticosa

 

I've seen a lot of Eristalinus this summer. This specimen is the only one I've come across that has red eye spots – they're usually dark brown or black.

 

This and the shots presented below are all handheld single exposures (no stacking) made with a bellows mounted Zeiss Luminar 63/4.5.

 

Strobist: One Canon Speedlite 270EX mounted on Manfrotto hydrostatic arm and diffused through a modular diffuser.
