May 5th - Observe some flies!

Heyo, fly folk!

My goal for you all this week is to go outside and find any one fly to upload to iNat. It can be a muscoid, cecid, even a culicid. For extra points, find five (or more!).

Have fun!

ooh... challenge accepted. I've been seeing lots of flies lately. What do the extra points get us? Virtual brownies, maybe? :-)

Does it count if we uploaded before you posted? This one was so bright and shiny and did some nice dances for me that I processed them as HDR. If you have a monitor that can display HDR images, like an M1 Mac or a relatively new iPhone or iPad, you should be able to see the HDR images. It seems Safari doesn't support HDR yet, but Chrome and Brave do - at least in the format I uploaded here. (also uploaded to iNat, but I don't think HDR works there)
If you can't see HDR images, you get to still see the images, but they look relatively bland. HDR is really nice for shiny bugs.

I looked around on the crepe myrtle after I took video and stills of the first fly I noticed and found another one on the same plant. Looks like one is male and one is female. I wonder if they ever found each other.

I'll be recovering from City Nature Challenge. But I've got lots of syrphids now, and several others. I'll do my best!

Got my five!

Would have had a sixth but kitty got to it first.

Here are my 10 obs - I went with the CV suggestion so I don't know if the initial ID is correct. All my observations were along the Mississippi River.
