LOL! Thanks Suzy!Thanks Dave - I almost missed him - he was so small!! The beauty of zoom!!
I never heard of a leaf roller fly before either, Robyn. Great photo!
Chickie said it! Zebra bug!!!
I hadn't until this morning either Prue!! We got a measly 3.5mm - and it looked so promising too!! Today the wind has dried it all out:(((
Haven't seen any of these here. We had 10.5 mls yesterday. What did you get?
Not quite Beekay!!!I just went looking for him on Google Shirley - he's a Leaf-Roller Fly! I never even knew they existed!!
I've never seen one of these, he looks like he's from the fly family, bit like a march fly but wrong colouring. Thanks, Rob.
Looks like one end bites and the other end stings!
I hadn't either Lyndee - until I went looking for small things to try & photograph!! Thanks!
Don't think I've ever seen one of these little critters. :)
LOL! Thanks Sharon!That sounds good to me Sandy - thanks!
I would name it a zebra fly. He's cute for a fly.
Well...he certainly does. Great photo, Robyn.....thanks. Sharon
