[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The horsefly, insect dipterous of the family of tabanidae, is a large fly. The female, 2 cm long, is armed with a short and strong horn provided with stylets to the means of which it sting and bores the skin of the mammals to suck blood of it. The male, smaller, has a reduced horn and cannot sting. The horsefly inoculates to men and animals PARASITES which live in blood. Those of Africa transmit to the man a parasitic worm, which moves in subcutaneous cellular tissue. In Europe, the horseflies contaminate oxen and the sheep for which they constitute a true danger.

Hello Didier,
Great closeup work, very sharp with excellent details..

Hi Didier,
hope it only saw you - and don't bite you.
A wonderful fly, the eyes are marvelous, so sharp and with cool colours.
Maybe a friend of the fly I showed some days ago? Both horseflies, brrrrrr, I don't like them, but they are pretty!
Thanks and bye
