I like to use vintage m42 lenses.
This photo were taken on my hiking tour through the forests and meadows, and I only had a 50mm Macro-Takumar in my bag, the first and smalest model.
This is a very, very large crop, maybe only 10% of the original scene. :D
Thanks to the visible dots on the wings I assume this is a dotted bee-fly (Bombylius discolor).

Great capture of the feeding behavior and the long legs and proboscis of the bee fly.

A fine capture of this bee fly feeding, and excellent detail for such a large crop!
