Horsefly

Horsefly
A large (1-2 cm) horsefly that was one of a group of three sunning themselves on the walkway rails at Burton Mere Wetlands. I think it's Tabanus bovinus and possibly a nectar-feeding male as I can't see any sign (on this and other shots) of the surgical mouthparts. It also showed no sign of interest in feeding on me.

Many thanks. Quality comes from good light and a good lens plus taking several shots to increase the chance of getting the focus correct.

Merci beaucoup. La qualité vient d'une bonne lumière et un bon objectif, plus la prise de plusieurs coups de feu pour augmenter agrandir la chance d'obtenir la mise au point correcte. (Google translate!)
