Big waspy fly

Big waspy fly
In appearance and movement, this fly did a very effective wasp impersonation. Was about 5/8-inch long.

Thank you, Roy. During my time taking news pictures, I would "hide" behind the camera, concentrating on making the pictures and thereby avoid noticing some of the awful things I was depicting. It seems as if this works to some extent with insects and short focal length lenses: they let me move in with a camera much closer than they would without a camera. Am not prepared to test this hypothesis with wasps and poisonous snakes, however.
