I have to accept the fact that it has amazing eyes but other than that it's on the black list together with the other sucker from the previous page...The female loves to feed on blood !( ....sounds familiar ? :) while the male feeds on pollen.. oh, that's so sweet and innocent :)))) Predators of the deer fly include nest-building wasps and hornets, dragonflies, some birds including the killdeer and yours truly ! oh how I love to kill it ..not eat it .... :)) I hope you never encounter this female :) Have a colorful week !!
