    Photos 2mm fly

    Not sure what type of fly - but I thought it was just brown until I blipped the flash and edited the image.



    Just 2mm in size, it needed all 3 tubes on the camera at it's closest focusing point to make it any reasonable size.

    Meanwhile, here is the cropped detail.

    The Grass Fly in the genus Thaumatomyia. Both the genus and family, Chloropidae, or commonly known as Frit Flies, are new to me. The larvae feed on Aphids, so being on the laurel, near my tall rose might explain it's presence.

    Thanks Ian for the ID m8.
