We were paddle camping this weekend and one night camped in a very horsefly rich area :( This one bit the fool out of my calf resulting in a small rivulet of my blood trickling down my leg, but he paid the ultimate price.

Wonderful capture.
Think that's called self defence :)

Excellent shot. What's that red in the background - blood?

That's revenge...
they do say revenge is a dish best served cold...

a brief period of captivity, a cooling down period, a photo shoot...

perhaps you could have reconciled your differences... :rolleyes:

It was just Renshaw cell reflex that directed my hand toward the pain. I don't know when you were last bitten by a horsefly, it is not a pleasant experience. I placed his carcass into a small container on the second day of the trip, carried him in the kayak for the remainder, then stacked him at home.
Archibald the red comes from a piece of cardboard I plamped behind him.

I'm pretty sure the one that bit me was vaporised the moment I struck it...
I certainly couldn't find its remains. :(
