Green Horse Fly Genus Chlorotabanus
The horse flies I grew up trying to stay away from were big dark flies. When I saw this pretty green fly, abut the size of a honeybee, my first thought wasn't to wonder if it bites.

As it turns out, they do bite, but this biting green fly bit the dust before it bit me. See some other flies I've found on my fly page.
