Long-legged Fly (Two Photographs)

The Long-legged fly common in North America is usually found near water and it eats small insects and mites. While I have seen many of them, this is the first time I have had any luck at one staying still long enough to get a shot. It’s great to get an insect face-on but it’s not always possible. I am sure it could see me but it may have been as fatigued from the heat as I was. Taking insects like this requires a macro lens and even if this was not taken at 1:1, they are simply too small to get detail with other lenses.
