Artist's Description

Large dark blue “horsefly”.

Taken near a pool in Florida.

Canon 7D
50mm macro

PP- Lightroom & Photoshop ( removed color from everything other than the main subject)

Update: I figured this was a horse fly but was not sure, after some research i found out that it is a “Black Horse Fly”, or Tabanus atratus.

The Male drinks honeydew and nectar; while the female sucks blood from large mammals, especially cattle and horses.

My assumption is, that this is a male as it was located near some very sweet smelling flowers.
