Day 74 - Hangingfly


This magnificent creature belongs to the Mecoptera, the same order as scorpionflies, but in family Bittacidae. You can differentiate between them and crane flies (which are true flies) by the presence of a "beak" and overall slightly more badass physique.

This one has caught a tasty Hemipteran.
