This particular shot, was one I lifted the camera, fired off an image and on the second frame, the bug was gone. In other words, I only got one shot of it. But when I looked at the shot, I really liked it.
All I know about this ugly, little critter is it is a member of the Tachinidae family and probably a species of Peleteria. But he sure is a cool looking fly. Besides, I love the way I cropped the shot. 8v)
