Dear Dr.Shukla, Thanks for the information. From the size of the creature it is clear that it is a nymph (sub-adult). I salvaged another photo from which it looks more like a fly.

PURUSHOTTAM T SHUKLA Dear Palanky Narayana; You are right as the abdomen looks like Drosohila species but I am confused with the star shaped appendages near it.Are they part of the nymph photographed?

palanki-narayana When I spotted this insect it just looked like two conjoined mustard seeds with spokes radiating out. When the photo was enlarged to 36 times the sensor size, the 'mustard seeds' were seen to be two segments of the thorax and the star shaped appendages are the markings on the wings which are transparent. Altogether, a fascinating creature!

This is the tiniest creature I have clicked. I saw a small moving dot of 2mm size on the small flower and took a photo using macro setting. I could see the insect only while looking at the full size photo on my laptop screen. Can Dr.Purushottam Shukla identify this insect for me?

Mr.Mazumder, some loss of detail is seen due to slight over-exposure. Do you think my editing has made a difference?

Debmalya Mazumder Yes Sir. That was over exposed. Actually these are so momentary that it is very hard to rectify during execution. Constant chasing behind the object never allows to get accurate exposures because sometime it is in shadow and sometimes it is in sun shine area. Post processing may give more accurate result that you have find here. Thank you very much Sir. Stay in good health and stay tuned with me.
