    Beautiful image. I love the look in the little buggy eye and is that a yellow proboscis?

    A remarkable photo, Lisa. Interesting that it let you get so close; it must like you. It looks like it's sticking out its tongue with the effort of hanging on. The detail on this is superb.

    Wow, I must have missed this post in the weekend flood of uploads. Great shot, LB! Any idea what the species is?

    What the heck is this species!

    Looks like a hoverfly to me. It's a little too centred for me, would have placed it to the right third more. But I like the way you took this shot. It looks like it's staring at the peak of the grass blade and the overall yellow tones.
