This fly is trying pretty hard to look like a wasp.
This is the last in my series of wasps/flies on thistles where I have been exploring tone-mapping vs. lightroom processing. I think that for this fly, the tone mapping has the edge – the background has not suffered too much and in some ways is more interesting, and the improvement in the fly and especially the wings seems worth the effort.
Check out the gallery below to compare the two kinds of processing.
