Scranton, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, USA April 20, 2010 Size: approx 3/8" (0.9cm) long
I noticed this fly on my clothes line when I went out to hang clothes this morning. It did not move even after gently shaking the line a few times after getting the photos. I tried to get it into a jar for some better photos but it fell off the line during my attempt as it was already dead. I wish my camera had better macro capability to get some better shots. Any idea what kind of fly this is? Never seen one of these before.
