This is a really big bug; it's a horsefly. They bite. I've found other
, or they've found me, but this
is by far the biggest. And the creepiest!
I should not be able to see a fly on a tire from across a parking lot!
Here's a quarter where the fly
was so you have a better idea of how HUGE
I follow a lot of bugs and other creatures to take pictures of them, but
these flies turn the tables and follow me. I'm more comfortable
photographing wasps, because at least those bugs view me with fear;
these flies view me as dinner.
Despite my discomfort, when I noticed this next horsefly I followed it
to the Black Olive Tree that it landed on. It posed briefly, but when it
flew I ran out of courage and ran inside.
Well, I only got one decent picture of this bug, so you'll have to wait
for another to cross paths with me before I fill the rest of this page
