This guy looks like he can't decide if he's a fly or a mosquito (too big for a mosquito)
neat I say its a fly
Not sure on that one Ian. Looks like a cross between a horse-fly and a robber fly? Definitely a biting fly of some sort. Not a mosquito.
Thats a really nice profile shot.
Thanks! He's much smaller than a house fly but several times the size of a mosquito.
Mosquitos are bigger here in florida lol.
Looks like a robber but im not sure.
Nice shot too!
That is a flysquito. Only found in Arizona, it is a hybrid fly/mosquito...
I think their favorite food is the Jackelope.
This doesn't look like anything weird to me. Just looks like a species of Dolichopodidaie (long-legged) fly. Here's one that is very similar in stance and appearance...only main difference being the hair and possibly eye color.
Long-legged Fly - Calyxochaetus - BugGuide.Net
Nice shot. I think there was a giant insect party and a fly and mosquito had a little too much to drink and...
Well, looks like I have a positive ID ... a Bee Fly
Here's the link from the good folks at bugguide.net
Bombyliidae? Possibly Geron sp?? - Geron - BugGuide.Net
