Beware of long-legged flies! They are gateway insects, soon you'll be wallowing in mud to get a photo of the elusive lesser dung flies (Sphaeroceridae). There's no going back, just ask Black or Nikita Wink

Seriously, it's always a pleasure to see someone having genuine interest the these all-but-ignored small creepy-crawlies. There must be 10.000 photos of an eagle or a bear for each long-legged fly photo. I thought long legs attract photographers Shock

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
