A male Common Scorpionfly, Panorpa communis . They look as though they may be dangerous but are in fact harmless. I wanted to try and get an image from under the fly as opposed to the normal over the top shot show as to show off the colourful thorax and mouthparts.
Full frame image straight out the camera with no manipulation whatsoever other than adding a border and a quick sharpen.
Thanks for looking in......Ade
