That’s a botfly, alright…

Thanks to James, who spotted Lumpy the squirrel on a feeder and lunged for the camera–and then put on the telephoto, and then set up a tripod, and then had me restrain the cat while he flung the sliding door open–and successfully got a really good photo of Lumpy’s lump.

Thanks also to Lumpy for holding still.

I’m pretty sure it is, indeed, a squirrel botfly.
