A Little Fly  
Once upon a Phyla nodiflora...
curious little bug - a fly with clear wings that stick out perched on a Phyla nodiflora stem
Small fly with big red eyes, clear wings that stick straight out, white halters, a black thorax with white stripes,
		and a red abdomen with a black stripe and a couple of faint upside-down bobby-pin like marks
Seriously - once. This tiny fly with its wings sticking straight out paused for a moment beneath this Phyla nodiflora flower and then vanished. It has a black thorax with white stripes, and a red abdomen with slight black markings. The plants nearby were well chewed, so I suspect that this fly was preying on what chewed it, but numerous gently turned leaves yielded no clues.
