Goksu delta, Turkey; 17 June 2011

All females I saw rested on the ground in low vegetation. The color pattern helped a lot to let them blend into the vegetation. Sharp shadows and small wite pebbles look pretty much like this fly in real life. So although it stand out boldly on a photo, in reality they are quite well camouflaged!
