The rubber boots a good idea, the bare knees, short-sleeved shirt and no hat, not quite so smart.

Okay Jari here I got two flies at the time, I meen me and and my desk. I don't collect so you can see sample diptera photo and camera equipment in use (testing setup). Points if someone recognizes the common diptera in the photo. Finnish dipterist are not allowed to answer, they might know the photo.

Well, that's me and my faithful (if clumsy) helper Zymba (an Airedale terrier, in case you wonder). She sure tries hard to get the flies, but hardly ever succeeds and, when she does, eats them:
I, on the other hand, only take pictures and neither collect nor eat them...
The setting is the vineyards around Banyuls in the Pyrenees orientales.

I read this forum almost every day, but I don't post much things. Have allready learned much here Smile I live in Belgium, Ostend. I study biology in Ghent.

I just got 20 last month. (4october Wink)

Mainly I focus on Syrphidae, but I also like Tephritidae and Stratiomydae a lot Smile
Besides diptera I like Birds, Orthoptera, Lepidoptera and some Heteroptera...

Yeah, that's it I think Smile

I'm the person on the right.

bye, Jonas

Hi all,
I'm almost completely new to this site (been lurking a while though), but I have already learnt a lot from you all. Hopefully I will be able to contribute something.

My name is Lars and I'm from Sweden. I live in a town called Helsingborg on the west coast (only 4km away from Denmark).

At the moment I don't have any photo of myself as I'm usually behind the camera, but I can show you at least a small part of myself Smile Well, a part of my shorts when they were visted by a Myiathropa florea.

Hi! I am T. Nakamura "Dhalma" from Nikko, Japan.
I work for a Museum here. The special interest is in Craneflies (Tipuloidea, Trichoceridae, Tanyderidae, Ptychopteridae) and some Nematoceras (Such as Dixidae, Anisopodidae, Nymphomyiidae.....).
I see some people from the Netherlands in this site.
As I stayed at ZMA (Amsterdam) for about 4 months two years ago, I might have seen some of you already.

This is Me with my dog.

Greetings to everyone,
now I upload a photo of myself, taken in Greece this Summer Smile My full name is Walter Pfliegler, live in Hungary, Miskolc, and study molecular biology at the University in Debrecen. So animal photography, flies and and insects are hobby for me, not profession (at the Uni I work with Saccharomyces - much easier to handle than flies Smile )
Most of my time I spend with taking photos of animals, plants, fungi, protozoans (with microscope), etc., and trying to determine them.
I use a Pentax K10d with a 70-300 Sigma, but for insects I'm using some old-shool Zenit and Pentacon lenses reversed.

Hi Walter, great to see new photos Wink People seems to be very shy or just lazy to send pictures of themselves.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
