I found this tiny fly in the driveway on Wednesday. Two of them, actually. Yesterday there were 3 – two green and one gold. But these two shots were taken on Wednesday. I Googled and so far I’ve got ‘Long-Legged Fly’. They’re between 7-9mm long. Pretty things, huh?

A very big thank you to Lynne(Joyce) for her Mod in my previous upload. Very impressive how you did that, Lynne Smile
