Longhorn Cactus Fly getting some wine from my glass. Manual focus Mamiya Macro Sekor 60mm on the Sony.

That is quite an amazing shot, with the swirling colors behind the fly. However, drinking wine is not a good habit for the fly to get into! ;-)a

Drunken fly escapade?

Thank you! Actually these flies reproduce in the rotting and fermenting cactus in the hills around East Orange, so they seem to be naturally attracted to wine. In the summer we have to cover any wine that we bring outside, as they will crawl in and sometimes drown (happy I suppose). This guy just just had a sip and flew off...

A very fine portrait of that wasp, especially on the early-season nest.

Thanks. I was about a foot away from the "terror with wings", and it was getting fidgety.. so I retreated rather quickly after that shot!
