Not a good photo unfortunately but here's a truely horrid creature. It is a Louse Fly family: Hippoboscidae. They are ectoparasites.

Does look brutal.
 
Decent shot but yes, an ugly little cuss/foul creature but I'll take one of those landing on me over a botfly any day. :nightmare:
 
It's not a bad shot. I agree with Kirk, take that over a botfly or a horsefly. We had a dog that had a botfly larva in it's cheek. When the bump opened up, we poured hydrogen peroxide in the hole, and the little maggot bubbled out. Fascinating and disgusting all rolled into one.
 
An ugly looking creature but an interesting find - what is the host?
 
its those eyes.... good shot.. we saw enough
