47.63054N 52.68758W (WGS84), Logy Bay, Northeast Avalon, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada July 9, 2008 Size: 11mm head to wing tips
Based on the wings, I'm going to say this is not a fly. Other that that, I'm stumped. I found this 'bug' sitting on our driveway. I couldn't photograph it immediately so I put it in a container and later released it on to some gray cardboard for the photograph. It was reluctant to fly. When the photos were done, I finally had to shake the cardboard to get it to fly away. It flew eratically and quickly landed on some grass.
