... called Sicus ferrugineus appeared in the garden today.

Its a weird looking fly and this one I believe is fairly newly emerged as the face hasnt quite filled out properly yet. I have only seen one of these once before in our garden about two years ago.

I think they have that 'creepy' look about them that they mean harm to something innocent lol.

Wonderful work Linda, very sharp.

Does look a bit unpleasant, reminds me of the Alien slightly.
