Yard Critter of the Week

There are approximately 120,000 species of fly on Earth.

(Think about that for a moment.)

And of all those, this one chooses may yard as home.* Well these two (and by the looks of it more on the way soon.)

The Golden-backed Snipe Fly.

(I didn't even know that "snipe flies" were a thing.)

Pretty cool looking, for a fly.


* Sometimes it seems like all 120K live here. It can get very buzzy at times.
