Sunset from hilltop
Sundown as viewed from Diablo Mountain (California) viewpoint was enchanting.
Though the evening was a bit hazy with mist, I could get lovely view of the magnificent moment!!
These pictures were captured with P & S cam sometime back.
Flies are insects with a single pair of wings. Anybody with a lush garden and keen observation can spot these flies around your garden, as I could!
Crane fly mimics a paper wasp but it is harmless. This type of crane flies are generally seen in Asian countries. The larvae feed on decaying matter.
Robber fly or Assassin fly is a predator, feeding on other small insects and pests in the garden.
Long-legged flies are very small flies with large, prominent eyes and a metallic cast to their appearance. Adults are predators, feeding on aphids, larvae of mosquitos etc.
Black soldier flies are of great economic importance as the larvae decompose organic matter to form manure. They are very common in gardens.
