Gymnocheta viridis


This one was a new one for me. I know it’s but a fly, but I am always taken by the beautiful metallic green sheen. Double-click image for a closer look.

  1. Flies can be beautiful too…especially those with a metallic look. One of the features found on a fly that, for some reason, I get quite a kick out of are the halteres.As I’ve aged my balance is challenged now and I could use a couple of those. 😀
