Fly - Callopistromyia annulipes

Fly - Callopistromyia annulipes
Deep Fork Wildlife Refuge, Okmulgee County, Oklahoma, USA

Size: aprox. 4mm
This one put on quite a show. I did not see another one around, so it must have been for me.
I thought it must be a male for all the displaying it was doing, but the eyes look like a females.

Thanks, I appreciate your comment.
I prefer to think of the subject as being beautiful and the photograph coming in as a poor second.

Looks like a turkey fanning out its tail feathers. Quite impressive.

Thanks for the confirmation Keith.

 
C. annulipes
Not sure of the wing pattern variation in these, but Steyskal '75 listed only 2 Nearctic species for Callopistromyia, and C. strigula looks very different. Someone doing work in this group might have more up to date info...
