Author's notes

large fly about 15-20 mm Where ever I go on our 100 acre bush block in the past few weeks, one (only one at a time so far) of these soon finds me and buzzes noisily around in tight circles while I walk. As soon as I stop it settles for a feed, but fortunately considering It's fearsome looking proboscis (photo 2), It is fixated on penetrating my boot leather. I'm pleased to report that so far it has failed to do so

I found a name on Bowerbird, Triclista (Scaptia) guttata. When a checked this species I found you have a similar record for 2016 identified by Kim Pullen. Good to put a name to my image as well.
