A Face Only a Mother Could Love...
While I find all insects interesting it is undoubtedly true that some have more widespread appeal than others. Take the example of this interesting fly than I found recently in my garden. It's a Conopid Fly (Myopa tesselatipennis) and one that I've been keen to photograph for some time precisely because of its unusual looks. While its appearance may not be to everyone's tastes it is the more 'characterful' insects such as this that make for the most interesting macro images in my opinion. This individual had the added misfortune of being covered in some sort of dust.
