I came across this Picture-winged fly and as I started to move in close to get his photo and it was almost felt like he was directing me.

Move a bit to your right....


Okay, now just move a little bit to your left....


The fly was alternately signaling with one wing, then another, as it moved very slowly like a chameleon.

Very good! Quite an interesting subject to shoot. Have never seen that fly before.

Thanks everyone! It is a unique insect that I had not seen before. I had seen a different type of Picture-winged fly when living in Missouri so this is a new one to chalk up.

Nice shots.

I got one a while back. Amazing multi-coloured eyes they have.
