Feather-legged flies

I can't believe this! While going through photographs for a magazine article, I discovered that I'd never posted these images taken in October 2015 on my blog. What a cool find! Meet a feather-legged fly (Trichopoda plumipes). 

I also found the same species in May 2018. That makes two different species of feather-legged flies that I've documented in our Wildscape. In August 2016, I found Trichopoda lanipes. You can see why they're called "feather-legged."
