Hiya All,

Just taken a break from my trench digging :rolleyes: & looking through my vast array of shots ( not ) I find I've forgotten to post this little Fly, Dolichopid I think, never seem to be able to get my head around all the different type of crap guzzlers :lol:

Well I'd best get back to the digging as we have rain forecast damn it

Cheers for now

Dont know what fly it is Mark, but they are jolly good pics of it. I like the first one best.

It looks a little sad if you ask me, nice clear shots though Mark. I agree about the flies, too damn many to choose from. ;)

Good ones Mark- does look like one of the smaller dolichopids - have you chopped it off at the knees- seems to have short legs for a long legged fly :)

Hiya Bryce,

Many thanks for your kind words & comments, we seem to be back too good ol Autumnal British weather here at the mo, gales & rain for the last 36 hrs, no shooting for me just up to my armpits in muck & mud digging a trench for my new water main, damn I forgot how hard it is to swing a Pick Axe one handed, thought holding a camera was bad enough :lol::lol:

Cheers for now
Mark

Hiya Acchildress,

Many thanks for your kind words & comments,

So sorry for not replying sooner but I'm still digging away, I feel like one of those tunnelers in the ' Great Escape' as the gap between my floorboards & ground is only 16 inches, think I'll change my name from 'Bandit' to the 'Mole' at this rate :lol:

Cheers for now
Mark
