Swarm of Flies

There still aren’t any herons to be seen down by their rookery, but I did see this Red-tailed Hawk down there.  For some reason I haven’t seen too many birds lately.  Maybe they are all waiting in nests?

Insects though are everywhere, as you can tell from my latest posts.  Of course, while I was looking for herons I was swarmed by a bunch of flies.

Photos of the “swarm” didn’t come out, but this one rested on a Spiraea leaf right in front of me.  While they were flying, their front legs looked very long and they hung low under their bodies.

Here’s a closeup.  Possibly a Robber Fly?
