  1. That's one beautiful species and stunning macro!

    I noticed you got a pretty deep depth of field, did you focus stack?

    1. Thanks!!...No stacking..f/10 aperture and just got lucky.
      I grew up on a farm and around horses and cows all my life (54 now) and I have never seen one of these before..did not even know they existed.

      1. I wonder if this one stings, some horse flies have very painful bites. You'd be quite aware of its existence lol. Posted 7 months ago
