Just for fun

Here's a mystery critter; can you identify it?


Hint: the photo was taken through two panes of glass.


  1. i'm going to guess a bee of some sort...

  2. sorry, got me - a spider maybe?

  3. I haven't a clue. I only know I'm glad it wasn't staring at ME!

    Well, it's got wings. Can't see how many but the abdomen looks decidedly fly-like. My guess is some kind of Calliphorid (Blowfly)?

    Just noticed it has what look like halteres. Definately a fly of some sort!

  6. And Dawn (on Twitter; @DawnFine) said it may be a "Hairy Butt Spider".

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
