    This is a fly which mimics bees - eristalinus taeniops - but it has the most unusual eyes.

    Nice, though you focused on the wing?

    Good shoot. Always wondered how they would look at close range. They can "hover" in the air, can't they?

    Thanks for the comments everyone. :)

    Traxtor: yes they can hover just as bees do.
