Unknown Fly

Observed: 13th August 2012 By: LeucarethLeucareth’s reputation in InvertebratesLeucareth’s reputation in Invertebrates

This fly seemed quite interested in the nectar/pollen of this large daisy. He spent most of the time licking it off his legs with a really long tongue. Measures approx 1 cm.

ID comment
