Efferia aestuans

Description:

Looks like a type of biting fly... perhaps only recently emerging from pupa stage, from looks of abdomen.

Notes:

Trying out my homebrew macro lens on my iPhone 4S. :)

That's the best I can do for now. They are predatory insects.

It's a male Robber Fly. I'm looking to see if I can find which one.
