Hover fly

Ornidia obese


This Hover fly was inside the plane next to my seat. I always carry a pocket camera with me to take photos of the mountains and clouds from the window, I never expected to use it for a spotting.


The plane had a stop before in Oaxaca city, I believe it came from there.


This Hover fly was ID by Lauren Zarate.
