The weather here has been unbearable lately, as I'm sure it is in so many places this summer. I have been living indoors too much of the time, and too lazy to tend to my blogging, but I have been taking a few pictures here and there. Even in the sweltering heat, there are plenty of bugs to see when I take the time to look.

A cute little fly resting with its speckled wings folded. I don't think I've ever seen this kind of fly before.
