Caption: A male cleg fly, or horsefly, (Haematopota pluvialis) distinguishable by the compound eyes only being partially patterned. Male horseflies (family Tabanidae) feed on nectar, but females feed on blood, inflicting a painful bite on horses, humans and livestock animals. This species is found in most of Europe, the Near East and eastern Palearctic ecozone.
