昆蟲觀察 Insect observations

我於我台中市東勢區山上的大自然觀察 My nature observations here in my hills of Dongshi, Taichung (Taizhong), Taiwan

不畏人之大蠅 Big fly that does not fear people

Photo: Fly wings from top

人可近此蠅無幾公分, 故於都市應早已滅。 舌橘色亦大又一直搖。 翅圖似蝙蝠俠設計。 我一年遇之僅一二次。 蠅頭至尾長約三公分。

I could get centimeters away from this big fly (about 3 cm. head to tail) who does not fear people. I assume in cities you will never see it as it would have long been swatted into oblivion. It has a large orange tongue that it is constantly waving around. It has batman-designed wing coloring. I only run into this fly a couple times a year.

感謝 Thanks "Young, Chen" YoungC at CarnegieMuseums.Org for getting me started with Pyrgotidae. 進一步比對得名: Further comparisons on the net reveal it is: Loxonevra perilampoides or decora or ... (Platystomatidae.)

每晨金龜出飛之時刻 Moment of dawn of the flying of "June" bugs

四五月每天天亮, 黃豔﹝?﹞金龜大量同時出飛, 於(標準)日出之前十八分鐘。 In April to May, every dawn the [Mimela testaceoviridis Blanchard, ?] bugs all come out at once to fly, about 18 minutes before (standard) sunrise.
