This fly has a second face in its face! πŸ˜€ It kind of looks like a cartoon character wearing huge headphones.

anthrax

Anthrax anthrax, is a species of fly in the family Bombyliidae. It’s a fairly large fly, the body length is 10 mm. The body is black with four white markings at tergum 2 and 3 and two white markings at the end of the abdomen. Tergum 1 is black with tufts of white hairs at the side (visible when hovering, thus not in this picture). The wings are mostly black, only the tops are transparant, and the veins are dark brown. It kind of looks like the wings have been painted with watercolour, I think the pattern is quite nice. πŸ™‚
