Artist's Description

The Feather-Legged Fly is names for the fancy “leggings” on the rear pair of legs. They are actually kind of pretty in their black and orange colors. The thing I really, truly love about them is they parasitize squash bugs (stink bugs). Keep these flies alive and well if you see them around your yard:>)

This picture was taken at the Green Lane Reservoir in Red Hill, Pennsylvania, USA, on September 24, 2012.
