Common Horse Fly


5 months agoSteemit2 min read

Hey Steemians,

This afternoon the sun came out and we had wonderful weather. I took my camera with me and searched for some motives. Mosquitoes and the Horse Flies have become a real plague after the rain. I am covered with stings.

I was "attacked" by this Common Horse Fly. After I "defended" me, she flew dazed to the ground, where I shot this picture. The eyes look a little bit like the eyes of the Hypnotoad in Futurama :-D
