Wildlife Wednesday

Here's another mystery critter.

It's a bit smaller than the Vinegar Fly Anita Joy identified a couple of weeks back. Picture taken the same day - it was damn hot! - and they were both sitting on the water tank in the shade.

He's some kind of fly, I'd guess from the big fly eyes. But I have no guesses for him. No pictures even looked like him. And I don't have a clue where to start looking! Yes, I could key it out - if I had the insects book (which is about a foot thick) and the insect, but all I have is the photo.

I have some things I know coming up. Phew! I was beginning to lose faith in myself :)
