Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Dance Fly - Empis clausa
Class:Insecta Order:Diptera Family:Empididae Genus:Empis


I first found one of these Dance Flies, with its feathered legs and very long proboscis, on a Daisy Fleabane flower head in late June.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
