Excellent photo! I guess it was skill and not luck that got him so clearly - unless they are stationary on flowers I never seem to be able to photograph them so well.

Yes, excellent, eyes!

I was struck by the fact that the back legs of this balteatus seem to be in significant motion; they are much more blurred thant the middle pair, and the front ones seem comparatively well tucked up. Perhaps none of that is significant, but I'd really like to see some video of as good quality as this still, in order to try to work out what the fly was doing.

Happy hunting!

John
