My garden in San Luis Obispo, CA
After a brisk rain, I noticed this fly perched on a blade of grass. After staring at him for a minute, I realized that he didn't seem to be in any hurry to leave. I ran into the house and was pleased to find that he hadn't left yet. In fact, this little guy let me photograph him for a few minutes before he got tired of me.
