Hello, I saw this fly this morning on my porch’s railing. I live in the Florida Keys. Didn’t seem scared by us. Feeds on nectar? Thanks
You have the family correct, but not the sex. This is a Horse Fly, but the space between the eyes indicates she is a blood sucking female. We are unable to identify the species at this time.
