Dance fly with prey

By barrywebb  
This male Dance fly was taken on the coast path in Northumberland. The male will present the female with a prey item as a gift before she will mate with him. I didn't spot the bonus of a small fly in the background until I processed the image.
Thanks for the nice comments, votes and awards for my Greenbottle fly shot.

Excellent detail, as always Barry. Pam
The Beauty about these images is the detail and the knowledge behind them Iíve found the series so far fascinating i look at moths and flies with renewed interest as each inter connects with the ecology
Of our world.
