I saw this one great photo on net and I think this is a must so I think to show here. This is really a cactus fly! :) Impressive!

Taken on 1 Jan 2004 somewhere in Equador - anonymous photo?

But it is curious to see this tachinidae fly. If genus possible to determine, it would be great. ;)

A member of the tribe Tachinini, which are very well represented in the New World.
Ask Monty Wood, Guelph, Canada, if you still want to proceed to generic level.
