Thank you for your kind comment. Actually I had already taken a few shots while it was sitting, but it took off when I was taking this last shot :)

Another great macro. Was this the one with 3 legs?

micritter club has replied to Andy Rodker club
Thank you. Yes, the same one. It took off after I got a few shots with it sitting there. Do you think that it may have tucked the third leg under its body (like the landing gear of an aircraft in flight)?

No idea but it looks now like a bipedal robber fly!

Vielen Dank. Es war reines Glück: Er flog unerwartet ab, als ich versuchte, sein Bild zu bekommen.
