    This is actually two different flies, I believe. I shot them at two separate times. Separated 1-2 and 3-4.

    Nice shots....are you sure on the ID? Looks more like a flesh fly or variant rather than a horsefly....The horseflies I've seen have some wickedly patterned eyes.

    Thanks. No, Im not too sure about the variety. We just call them horse flies, always have. I cant find a good bug identification website to figure this kind of thing out.

    It's cause everything is blurry green except for those crisp cherry-red eyes...

    www.bugguide.net for anything photographed in the US....amazing site with a place to upload for ID requests...or you can just search on your own. You will usually get fast ID's and there are a bunch of entemologists on the site.
