An Interesting Insect (Three Photographs)

This Tetanocera plebeja, a marsh fly, is an interesting bug because of its dance-like walk. It’s also interesting because it is apparently being stalked (in the third photo) by a Daddy Long Legs. The second of these photos was seriously under-exposed because the flash failed to go off. Resurrecting it meant dealing with more noise but it worked out nicely. Simply changing the exposure and increasing contrast, ensuring no blown blacks or whites, opening the shadows a bit and then applying noise reduction can often fix under-exposed RAW files.
