It's a literal fight all summer!
Swatting at them, running from them...
While this fella might not seem daunting, in actuality he is about
1 1/2 inches long! And he bites!!!
Hence the graininess of the photo

We have to contend with these buggers all summer.
We call them honkin' horse flies out here in the country J
In case you've never heard of one, you can read more about them here: http://www.uri.edu/ce/factsheets/sheets/deerhorseflies.html
Do you have any pesky summer bugs besides mosquitos?
Which I can see absolutely no use for, by the way.
