The Stalk-eyed fly

I stared in wide eyed amazement when I encountered this for the first time at an almost dried riverbed .......perhaps they were rather common but they were slightly smaller than a housefly and unless they landed somewhere right in front of you, you would never have guessed they have such funny appendages....
The Stalk-eyed fly (family Diopsidae) from Philippines.
