Description

At pond's edge I chanced upon this very large black fly casually laying eggs on a stem of grass out over the water.
I was able to get just one photo before the fly zipped away, leaving me the opportunity to inspect the egg mass. The latter measured approx 13 mm in length, which gives us a fly length of 29 mm.
