Default Pretty!

I am not sure what it is but I thought it was rather a super looking insect!

I saw a very brightly coloured and unusually large fly today too. Our climate is changing and so are it's inhabitants.

Still all bird food though.

It might be bird food but it's also called a Noon Fly (Mesembrina meridiana)
