A couple of quick macro shots of a march fly, with his metallic green eyes.
These guys are pretty common in parts of Australia and they pack a decent bite. According to the web, they use their strong, piercing mouth parts like a needle to extract blood from their mammal hosts. This is fine if they are in front of the lens making a nice photographic subject, but if you get that unmistakable feeling on the back of your leg, it’s not so pleasant.
The joys of living in Australia I guess.
