Feather-Legged Fly

Newer Older

This tachinid fly is one of the most visually pleasing to my eyes; the amber abdomen and blackened wings make a standout combination. While I would not call them rare, these flies do seem to be a pain in the butt to photograph; they are very aware of the bug paparazzi and getting satisfactory shots is sometimes difficult.

    Interesting capture, do very much like its black wings and orange body!
