Long-legged Fly (Condylostylus sp.): Long-legged flies generally have large eyes and are small with a metallic sheen.  During courtship, males show their legs to the females.  The females lay their eggs in the soil, where the larvae develop until pupating in a cocoon of soil particles cemented together.
