I have captured this "Dolichopodidae" or "Long-Legged Fly" in our yard. It's really a tiny species and I think for such Photography a perfect macro lens and Tripod are must. I used 300 mm full zoom here to get a good BG and due to hand held shot and quite dark place I used ISO 4000.

*Dolichopodidae, The Long-Legged Flies are a large cosmopolitan family with more than 7000 described species in about 230 genera.

* In genus "Dolichopus" is the most species with some 600 species.

* Dolichopodidae, generally are small flies with large prominent eyes and metallic cast to their appearance, though their is considerable variation among the species. Most have long legs, though some do not.
