Scary horsefly

I thought you might like to see this fierce-some beast which was perched on the fruit cage near my moth trap a few days ago. It eventually lumbered off like a B52 with a loud deep buzzing. It was almost an inch long and had huge eyes.
The female sucks blood from animals including humans!
