Fly with golden abdomen - House Fly - Musca domestica
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
May 30, 2015
This fly swooped in and landed on my arm, while I was filming a Jumping Spider that was also on my arm. I didn't get very many good shots of it, but I think that it might be a Muscid Fly, maybe a female House Fly, Musca domestica.
This is a common and widespread species, but if confirmed, this is the first sighting for the BugGuide in Arizona.
