I have never seen flies trying to drink nectar from flowers. This is onebig guy, almost double the size of normal house fly.

Agree that is not a normal looking house fly like we have. Great job Raghu, and a Happy New Year to you and your family. May it be joyous and prosperous.

My goodness! I have never seen a fly like that. Very nice clarity and interest in the composition.

Nice shot Raghu. I'm not sure but I think that big guy is what we call a Horse Fly here.
