I know this is a horsefly , but I call it the "oh...my ....God!" Fly. This thing is scary huge. About 1.25 inches, with piercing mouthparts. Imagine that thing taking a bite from you?!?
And no I didn't kill it. It's just stunned in that first pic. It got out of the cup after that last shot. At this moment this beast is loose in the Ranger Station, probably stalking me to take a chunk out of me. I reeaaaallly hope it gets out soon...!
