Long-legged Fly   (two photos)
Genus Scellus

long-legged fly
This was a good-sized Long-legged fly, 1/2 inch wings and all, that only let me get the one shot.  It resembles the much
 larger Robber Fly but this little guy has a squatty body.  Found on Antelope Island. According to the experts
on Bugguide, Scellus species are associated with salt or alkali flats.
