I'm Your Huckleberry...

This little Merchant of Death (aka Horsefly) landed on Jeff's car following a trail run and waited for him to drop his guard for a second as he changed clothes. Attention was maintained, pain was avoided...this time. He even managed to get this swell photo without suffering its wrath.

I got's all my eyes on you
By the way if you've never been bitten by a horsefly, consider yourself lucky. It's a pain you will never forget.


  1. He/she does look like a certain amount of trouble just waiting to happen.

  2. Awesome photo! Glad you outsmarted him, Jeff! I lived in Virginia once, I don't remember those flies ....

  3. They prey on the old, the weak, and the feeble-minded. That's why you never saw one and I got a close-up.

  4. Hey, like your new quote In the page header!
