Deer Fly

Chrysops sp.


Fly with a painful bite and a thirst for blood. I can't seem to find a species that this fits with, so it's possible that it's a Silvius sp. (?)


Lightly stalked pasture

Thanks DrNamgyalT.Sherpa, and Stephanie R. I was glad to find this little guy, I just wish I could have found him before he bit me.
