I am one of those city dwellers who only knows one variety of each basic animal. I can’t tell a copperhead from a diamond back. I just know snake. I can’t tell the house variety from the jumping variety. I just know spider. So all I can tell you about today’s photo is that it’s one of the most interesting-looking flies I’ve ever seen.

Fabulous macro shot! Great detail. 🙂
EWWW you can see the hair!! Great shot, but now I’m itchy lol! I’m such a wimp 😛
That’s what made the shot cool!!!! 🙂
hahaha that’s true 😛
This is a fly of the family “Tachinidae”. If you are interested to see a huge variety of flies, look for http://www.diptera.info gallery (european site) 🙂 I like flies for their beauty.
Thanks! I will check it out! I’m not necessarily a huge fan of flies, but the macro shots I’ve taken of two of them so far have been pretty cool!
