this fly has a strong resemblance to the fly I saw last weekend! But mine was even darker.

Thanks to all of youSmile

It was really sucking something...and was really commited to what it was doing. Even when I captured it, it didn't move.
Whatever it was doing it seemed very important.

Today I saw two of them mating (well, I think they were the same species):
