Firefly Mimic - Hoplitimyia constans

Firefly Mimic - Hoplitimyia constans
Fairfield, Wayne County, Illinois, USA
September 10, 2006
I have simply rotated the fly 180 degrees so that the sun's angle is reversed. You can see the intense reflective effect. When I attempt using flash directed from the head the effect whited out the camera's sensor array.
