Female Scorpion fly

Here is a female scorpion fly I managed to shoot the other day. This one landed in a nice position when scarpering a little far away but still a nice position

Re: Female Scorpion fly

Lovely capture.
I got a shot of one a couple of weeks ago near our local lake. Only had my 75-300 with me so that had to do. Nowhere near as good as yours, though.
