its a Hoverfly but I can't tell you what species from this angle. Excellent work considering how you have shot it but with the bare macro lens + ringflash you would be able to capture the reticulations of the eye in fine detail, the attached close-up lens gets you closer but loses you quality

Many thanks for your comments and tips brian,I`ll try with a ring flash next time. Would you use a ring flash when photographing dragonflys ? I haven`t in the past, but if it brings out even more detail I`ll give it a go.
