Ugly Bug

August 20, 2010

What the heck kind of bug is this???

Whatever it is, it's truly ugly in X3, but I couldn't help snapping, then posting this photo.

Spotted this really ugly fellow on my husband's 1981 Ford truck's window wipers. I have no idea what this guy is, but he is really, really ugly. Let me know if you know what this guy's name is. Hope he gives you a laugh today.

Thanks to everyone for your comments!!!


PS - see the comments below: Pulsman's friend thinks it's a Dance Fly (that's pretty cool, he does seem to be dancing - sort of), and Macropixels agrees with Pulsman that it is the fly family Empididae, a Empis Tesselata. Cool to know.
