What a pretty fly!

A very nice macro, crisp and the red background provides excellent contrast.

Sally nailed it, the wings look like stained glass! Great image!

Tiger Bee Fly (Xenox tigrinus) Beautiful photos. They are parasites of large carpenter bees.

It looks like a kind of barn fly. Almost has stained glass wings.

This would make a nice pin (if you like bugs) with the silvery back & stained glass wings.
