Diptera Gallery

Updated on January 6, 2013

Diptera comprise a huge assemblage of potential photographic subjects. In fact, I have received more awards in photo contests with photos of flies (especially Robber Flies) than any other group of Insects. Diptera are everywhere and if you take the time to observed them you will be amazed at their diversity.

This gallery displays some of the images I have collected over the years.

Below is a list of the families for which I have one or more photographs. You can either click on the family name links listed below or use the expanding tree on the left to explore the photographs.
