Descripción

This fly is 1 cm long. It was sitting on a plant, aimed away from the small flowers. It allowed a close approach, then jumped to a nearby flower head, and evenually flew away.

Could it be laying eggs? Until I got it in focus, I saw a lot of action with an something that I thought was the tongue while I tried to focus on it, but I was focusing on the back end. That might also explain why it was so unconcerned about me at first.
