Cleg fly sucks blood

Observation - Cleg fly sucks blood - UK and Ireland. Description: Never one to miss a photo op - I gave blood to get this photo of a hungry horsefly gorging itself on my arm. Drops of excess water drip out the rear end as they swell up .. Luckily I don't react and the pain was bearable, just... I think it' H. pluviali

Never one to miss a photo op - I gave blood to get this photo of a hungry horsefly gorging itself on my arm. Drops of excess water drip out the rear end as they swell up .. Luckily I don't react and the pain was bearable, just... I think it' H. pluvialis by the psychedelic eye patterning and mottled wings.
