She was still there when the day's work was done, and I finally got around to paying attention.
|Rainbow wings and orange stripes. The pen-nib tail end is her ovipositor.|
Zooming in from the side:
|"It's about time you showed up with that camera!"|
|Zooming in more, to show those cute moustaches, and one of the pale yellow halteres. These take the place of the second pair of wings, and serve as stabilizers in flight.|
I took the photos she was waiting for, and went to put the camera away. When I came back, she was gone.
