Sarcophagid
Block Island, Washington County, Rhode Island, USA
July 23, 2016
I saw several of these very large flies on elevated sandy areas in a salt marsh, Great Salt Pond. This one was a very cooperative photo subject, as it was nearly immobile when I found it, ptilinum still inflated. This photo was taken at 5:11PM.
