Long Legged Fly- (Dolichopodids) Note the length of its legs which bears its namesake. The eye catching main body color palette starts with its bright orangish eyes then moves to its almost glowing yellow back and finally to the tail with green and black stripes. He was so eye catching that he was able to take my attention away from my original subject for the challenge. I had originally been shooting a blood drop flower. He darted by and captivated my attention. In real life, he is more iridescent in color than the photo shows. His wings are see through and boast a leaf type pattern.
