Apparently I'm the 'newest' member so here I am with my favorite person in the whole world, my 2 year old daughter.

Sorry, not completely clear to me, but who is the newest member? You or your daughter?

What families do interest you/her?

Hehehehe, I have had the greatest of time seeing you all! Cool I cannot believe that I have found this thread after nearly two years at Diptera.info Shock

Well, I absolutely hate to be in front of a camera and I have hardly any pictures of me. But I guess I should make an effort and show myself. It is only fair.

Here is the black sheep of the community, using a camera instead of a net Pfft At least you know now who you are dealing with Grin Grin

Yes, taken in the outskirts of Madrid Wink but no ID required. That is Piluca in action Shock

Yes, smashing!! Sad Sad Grin

Try to photograph a tiny Anthomyiid with a compact camera, approaching like a wild board in a ceramic shop, carrying binoculars and an overloaded rucksack. Stability at its best, and chaetotaxy will show fine in the picture! Wink

No wonder my Anthomyiids remain unidentified Sad Sad awkward

After a lot of threads with request of help to find an ID, maybe its time to reveal my face on the forum ...

This is me (still a newbie in the diptera world) and my wife (who catch me a fly or two) on our way to some party.

I also post some photos of the surroundings where I live. Same place from opposite views.

Cheers

Leif and my wife Orix

Myself and one of my assistants (my youngest, Tetsu) in the woods near Index, Washington. We were looking for Carabidae, hence the garden cultivator and aspirator.

It's been noted on this site that American Tabanus can be large. Here I am photographing a Tabanus nigrovittatus which is about 900 mm long (estimated). Fortunately, Tabanidae do not normally bite indoors.
