These tiny beautiful Long-legged Flies are relentless hunters and prey on other small insects.

long-legged fly in Utah
These cute tiny flies are eye-catching, especially when the sun reflects their beautiful colors.  Not only
are they handsome, but they are predaceous in the larval and adult stage so please resist the
urge to smack them with your garden glove. © Carol Davis, 8-17-2008
