Since I had no bird visitors during lunch, I set out to see what I could find with the macro. I found this really small fly. I assume it's probably a juvenile house fly..??..

I'm still learning, but this sure it fun. Still attempting to hand hold & AF. I found myself feeling dizzy, as I attempted to sway with the bush in the breeze. I'm gonna have to try this with a tripod and find a way to steady the bush. Fun, nonetheless!

cool colors
This fella's eyes were borderline chameleon-like. Sometimes they were almost solid orange, sometimes mostly green. It was total overcast so there was little light variation.

Your flies are more docile and photogenic than my flies. Well done.
Thanks Gordon. If they are anything like juvenile birds, perhaps this one has not learned about humans yet.

Good shots Phil.
Thank you, Ron.

Great captures! Nice colours and details.
Appreciate it, Phil.

Nice shots! These guys are so small but have amazing iridescent colors!
Thanks Dossy.
You're right, they are small. That's what made me suspect they were juvi's originally. :)
We have house flies and horse flies, but I've not noticed the Long Legged Fly before. I'm sure it's just a result of my inattention / ignorance.
