After a really hot day, we arrived home and went into the garden. I notcied something moving in the bird bath. It was wriggling around. It seems to be some kind of larvae. about 2.5 cm long including tail.
I have never seen anything like it….can anyone help?
Urghh what is it?
I fished it out of the water to see how it reacted but there seemed to be no major response, so I put it back. It acted just like a tadpole.
The larvae, seemed to be totally at home in water and when not swimming around they just hang upside down with the tail at the surface.

Hahaha…I think I have solved the mystery of the strange Larvae. Its a Drone Fly Larvae known in North America as a Flower Fly.
Woo hoo! finally the mystery solved.
