Thank you CindyBinghamKeiser.

That's perfect! The more angles you have of an organism, the better your chances are of an ID. You can upload up to 6 images for each spotting. :)

Hello Cindy, I have uploaded a photo as you requested.

Hello, Do you happen to have a shot of this fly from the top? This MIGHT be the Black Horse Fly - Tabanus atratus but I can't say for sure with this angle.
