Here I go again...
These almost always get me in trouble, Kevin. I see the thick leg and immediately yell "Syritta pipiens!" So I'm eager, but am I right? (There's at least one similar syrphid, which typically eludes my memory. Today is typical.)

Oh, looks like you arrived at the same conclusion. Did you just move this, or am I hallucinating? Again?

 
Again?
That sounds interesting.

Nope, I didn't move it. There's one fly editor that moves the files but never puts in the little thing that says it's been moved. The only reason I even mind is that I like to update my files on my end, and when those flies move without the note being posted, it doesn't generate the email to me either. So unless I happen to be back browsing and just happen to notice it's been moved, I'll never realize a change has happened with one of my pics.

 
Wonderful!
Not only am I right. I am lucid.

 
well...
I'm not sure I'd go *that* far! ;)
