Long-legged flies in crops
It is not unusual to find something in corn or soybeans that normally does not occur there. This year, a species of long-legged fly is abundant, especially in soybeans, but it is not a pest of either this crop or corn. The adult fly is a metallic green and copper with clear or patterned wings, and of course, long legs. Adults are common in damp woods and fields, and along streams, where they can be found running in circles on leaves.
