Tampa, Florida, USA
Size: 1 inch
saw this fly in Flatwoods park, Tampa.

Excellent photo
of this species Tabanus americanus, female.
Could you crop your original 1092x1052 px image to 560x560 px with the fly taking up the entire space. This will improve the usefulness of the image for BugGuide.
Thanks.

Edit: That's much better, moved to page
