This little fella was loud and fast..
Landed and posed on my arm 🙂

However did you manage to get such clearly focused photographs shooting one handed?  We believe your fly is
Meromacrus acutus after looking at numerous images on BugGuide.

I have a lot of practice shooting our gorgeous little friends, many that are much smaller than him. Lots of experience in macros, so he is a rather large target.  He really did just land on me and pose. I already had the camera,  got 3 shots of him before he buzzed off. That’s a great compliment, thank you.
