Thick-Headed Fly #1 - Physocephala marginata
Near Ruraldale, Upshur County, West Virginia, USA
July 20, 2004
When I made my first quick sort through my photos, I put this in my Bees & Wasps category. Going back now for the first time, the wings reminded me of a picture-wing fly. Then I noticed the little yellow halteres. Whoops, wrong Order! I had to move the photo over to the Flies category.
Ye gads, what is going on with those asymetrical antennae? [Some years later now and a little wiser, I see that I mistook the mouthparts for an antenna!]
