A stalk-eyed fly (Diopsidae)

Here is a stalk-eyed fly from Western Malaysia, taken at about 3x magnification. The equipment was Canon 1000D + Schneider Componon 35mm f4 lens reversed on bellows racked to 50mm. This is a 19-photo stack processed in Zerene Stacker (PMax method) and then in PhotoShop.

The eyes on this fly are about 4mm apart and almost filled the frame in the photos.
