Yeats' Longlegged Fly could not have been more beautiful than this shiny emerald specimen found hanging out inside a touch-me-not flower recently.
The fly was very still inside the flower and it left me to wonder about its behavior. Was it resting inside? Hunting for prey? Sometimes in nature you don't receive the immediate answers but you do enjoy the beauty.
